Anglicans for Restitution

Check out this organisation, Anglicans for Restitution. The organisation was launched in the wake of Peter Adam’s 2009 lecture. At the moment it is a purely Melbourne based initiative, do you think something like this will happen in Sydney?

Thanks to Mark Eargney for the tip off.

Peter Adam: why sorry isn’t good enough

Posted in Australia, Reconciliation with tags , , , , , on November 7, 2010 by stephengardner

You might remember that in August 2009 Dr. Peter Adam of Ridley College Melbourne caused quite a stir when he claimed that the federal government’s apology to Indigenous Australians did not go far enough. In this video he urges Melbourne Anglicans to be a prophetic voice to the nation, seeking restitution.

Dr. Adam’s lecture was widely reported on in the blogosphere, Chris and Matt provided some great reflections. Over the next few months I hope to come back to Dr. Adam’s challenge to the Church to be a prophetic voice to the world on the matter of reconciliation.
