100 Years in the North
This year not only marks the apology by Kevin Rudd to the Aboriginal people of Australia. It also marks a centennary of work by CMS (the Church Missionary Socitey) in Arnhem Land and Northern Australia. This work arose out off the Anglican Churches response to wholesle murder of Aboriginal people by pastoralists in the 'Top End' at the start of the 20th century. Watch the video, watch out for celebration events this year, and if you are interested in finding out more, you can by the John Harris book (author of One Blood) 'We Wish We'd Done More' from CMS.
