Rethinking Reconciliation

 CG logoVideo message for Reconciliation from Brooke Prentice of Common Grace

We are invited to rethink our idea of Reconciliation and instead, think of it as the Aboriginal hand of friendship being extended to you.

 “Our nation needs healing, but that healing can’t happen from one side. It requires friendship.” Brooke Prentice 

This video post is the first in Common Grace’s Reconciliation as Friendship series celebrating Aboriginal Christian leaders from the Grasstree Gathering and sharing their perspectives on Reconciliation.

In her message, Brooke points out that 90% of Australians do not know an Aboriginal person. She asks “If you don’t know us, how can Reconciliation happen?"

“The bible calls us to friendship…. It’s time for the church to lead the way in much needed Reconciliation.”
