Advent Voices: a manifesto against our latest law

Isaiah 61:1-7 is repeated in Luke 4 by Jesus when he announces the blueprint of his operations.
It is the antithesis of the Immigration Bill allowed by the Australian Senate last Thursday night.

It is a strong Advent voice that calls the Australian people to account.
It comes not as warning, but as proclamation of the inevitable, in spite of our mean machinations:

Good news is there for the oppressed;
Binding is present for the broken-hearted;
Liberty for captives is proclaimed, as is release for prisoners!

Australian people, get on board and stop fighting the inevitable! This legislation is a feeble whimper against the storm of goodwill and compassion that our population will find once again because the unspeakable horror that this law exposes us to will wake us up.

Not really retired but reshaped and reshaping. Now a pilgrim at large ready to engage with what each day brings.
