ABM's Reconciliation Coordinator, Celia Kemp (author of Into the Desert) has written an 8-part study to open up conversation about the church's theological response to the Statement from the Heart. The studies are for those interested in a Christian response to Australia's history, listening to what Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Christians are saying right now, and grappling with the question of what it is to be a truly Australian church.
