"the apology"

John Davies has commented on the apology already. It was well done and created a wonderful reaction around the country.

In April some of our students will spend a week or so in Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory. Yesterday I caught up with Cliff Letcher from AIM who is organising the trip. He is no political radical, but he has worked with indigenous people and churches for a long time and understands their situation. His view is that  the apology is long over due. He also mentioned the work of a Christian couple who have gone to teach at Canteen Creek School in the NT and have "transformed" it. What great Christian ministry that is.
