God has called all disciples of His son Jesus, to actively participate in the coming of His Kingdom here on earth as in heaven. A great way to join with this redeeming and healing work of His Spirit is to live and work for the equality of all, in particular, the honouring and restoring of those who have consistently been ‘put last’. In our context those people include Indigenous Australians.

We’re made to be in relationships with one another, relationships based on mutual submission, respect and love but when one culture has misused its power in relation to another, the other is objectified, oppressed and sinned against—separated not restored to one another.

Through God’s forgiveness and reconciling love we can be ‘agents of reconciliation’ (2 Cor. 5:11-6:2). This kind of healing will take active participation in restorative justice, mercy and humility (Micah 6:8). Why wouldn’t our deepest desire be to see and to participate in God’s healing and blessing of our land?

If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time.
But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.

Lilla Watson (Aboriginal Queensland Elder)
