Today, as the nation marks "Sorry Day", we encourage you take part in National Reconciliation Week (NRW) from 27 May – 3 June.
We are reminded this week there is much work to be done to live out our covenant commitment and to walk in deeper relationship as First and Second Peoples.
This year's theme is "Reconciliation takes action" and we invite you to think about concrete actions you can take and to observe NRW in your worship. A resource has been prepared by the Synod of South Australia.
