About this Series
This Sunday we begin a series called “Promoting the Gospel.” The gospel about Jesus that we wish to promote is “good news” for everyone and for our country but the spiritual climate of Australia is mixed to say the least. Our reaction may be to withdraw from the public sphere and limit mission to personal interactions. I have no problem with personal evangelism – each person matters. But we must also have an eye on the wider issues that are affecting the spiritual dynamics of our country and state. Please do use whatever avenues you have to ensure a Christian perspective is communicated intelligently and graciously.

Is Australia a Christian nation? Probably not. Look at the pressure being put on to remove chaplains from schools, remove Christian religious education from schools, re-define marriage, legalise euthanasia, allow shopping on Good Friday (let alone every Sunday of the year). Think of the many social ills that beset society generally – drug abuse, alcohol abuse, suicide rates, family breakdown etc etc. It is quite clear that individual Australians need to hear the gospel and our nation needs the gospel. This is why we are encouraging you to use every means possible to promote the gospel. This is not just a preaching series, it is a call to arms.
