Re ‘10,000 soldiers’ [Echo Sept 4], there’s been many an empire and soldier. Like humanity though, they were all fragile in the end. Rome corroded from within. As for the Jews, they were looking for someone to conquer their Roman oppressors. Instead, Jesus came. He was prophesied many times, yet the self-serving didn’t recognise him. He served the oppressed. They brought all the sick to him and he healed them all.
Humble. Self-sacrificing. There’s no greater love (power of love, not love of power). There’s more to the story. Faith is of things unseen; all you’ve got to do is ask.
Re ‘Meeting Place’ letter last week, Delta (Arakwal) since mentioned Indigenous gathered at Uluru 2017. It appears the outcomes were overlooked by government and their voice not heard? You can read the most important political document in decades, ‘Uluru statement of the Heart’.
