Australia Day and the Lord | 21 January 2024

James acknowledged the turmoil and division in the world and sought God's peace to prevail. The passage emphasized the idea that through Christ, different groups could be reconciled and united. The sermon then transitioned to a discussion about Australia Day and the ongoing debate surrounding it. James Snare acknowledged the complexity of the issue, recognizing the differing perspectives and debates surrounding the date's significance. The congregation was encouraged to engage in theological reflection on how Christians could navigate these complex cultural and political issues.
