By Lyle Shelton
Sadly, there are those who do not want us to have a voice in Australian politics.

Like me, I am sure you are tired of this characterisation which is designed to intimidate us into silence.

Still time to register for “Fearless” with Eric Metaxas

The ACL is bringing Eric Metaxas to Australia from April 21-27 because at this time in our history we believe we can learn from those who have shown courageous Christianity in the past.

The cultural and political challenges we face as Christians do not mean inevitable defeat, but we do need to play our part.

Our prayer is that Eric’s visit will inspire the church in Australia to rise to a Wilberforce/Bonhoeffer moment, knowing our challenges are no greater than those faced by these heroes of the faith.
