A beautifully presented, concise and reflective response and study guide to The Uluru Statement from the Heart which was released 26 May 2017 by delegates to an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Referendum Convention, held near Uluru in Central Australia.
This study can be used in many different ways. It offers us a wide range of voices throughout history of people who have insignt and understanding concerning what it means to live in community as a people who both recognise the first owners of the land as well as embrace a healthy diversity.
Contextualised in the Gospels, illustrated by a Wiradjuri man, each chapter concentrates on a different theme about what it may possibly mean to hear the voices of our First Nation people. There are prayers and stories, actions suggested that can be taken, and many online resources cited for further reading.
This is a great study for young adults or older, for those starting out on the path of understanding, or those already a long way along. There's something here to reflect upon for every Christian, and every Australian.
