Today we partnered with Living Water, an Indigenous church in Redfern. It was invaluable to hear from Rev. Neville Naden about ministry to Indigenous Australians and the complex struggles and intergenerational trauma that have resulted from colonisation and the stolen generation. We had the privilege of hearing from an Aboriginal aunty in the church about her story of being part of the stolen generation, and how God upheld her and was her strength throughout her life.
Praise God for saving her and many others to know Him. Pray that we would be better at listening to and loving Indigenous Australians in the future in light of what we learnt.
Throughout the day we met strangers in the park and in the streets, inviting them to Church in the Park in the afternoon. Praise God for the newcomers who came, and please pray they will return to church again, comprehend the gospel and respond in faith.
