In Australia, this holy time has seen us living in the Great South Land of the Holy Spirit receive the welcome news of the forthcoming release of David Hicks. Justice for David has been to the forefront in recent times within the Anglican Archdiocese of Melbourne. Above is David's counsel, Major Michael Mori, at a recent press conference with the Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne, Dr Philip Freiere.
Meanwhile, over at Journey with Jesus, Daniel B. Clendenin is once again giving food for thought and a recipe for reflection with He's Subverting Our Nation!
And, speaking of reflection, enter into the spirit of Holy Week this week with the Community of Faith at St Thom's, Upper Ferntree Gully in the outer south-east of Melbourne in the foothills of the beautiful Dandenong Ranges.
