HERE'S TO THOSE WHO WANT TO TRANSFORM
AND THE WORLD
HERE'S TO A NEW BREED OF LEADERS.
Those predisposed to adventure,
and those who are already ready for the future to begin.
HERE'S TO THOSE WHO LOVE A BACKSTORY.
^^^ As in, the backstory to the song "Welcome Home".
Australia, like many countries, is now in the situation where desperate people arrive by whatever means, hoping to find safety. If you come to Australia by boat, this may result in indefinite detention. Over 200 children are indefinitely detained.
Many have forgotten that Australians largely traveled to this land by boat. The Australian national anthem sings "... for those who've come across the seas, we've boundless plains to share".
Hospitality is also a biblical value.
In 2014 The Annandale Arts Collective, Sydney asked a group of artists to raise awareness of issues faced by Australia's asylum seekers.
The song "Welcome Home" composed for that event, intends to welcome Australia's asylum seekers, in the name of Christ.
HERE'S TO THE THINKERS.
"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the Sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else".
- C.S. Lewis
