" ... These ought ye to have done ..." : a commentary on the church in the world today. /

by Tucker, G. [Gerard] Kennedy | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. 1963Description: 8 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: "Man's extremity is God's opportunity." We are at the extremity of our resources to save ourselves and mankind. The Church has an opportunity as never before vouchsafed to her. Given the grace to follow to its logical conclusion the Gospel we preach, we would be enabled to give the world a new hope and a new vision and those outside the Church whom we fail to attract would learn to know that the Plan laid down for the salvation of mankind, here and hereafter is the only plan that really counts. The whole future of the world depends on those who are alive today and above all on those who profess and call themselves Christians. This could be our "finest hour", It could be a second Pentecost.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Publisher: Crawley, W.A.

To others they are troublemakers and 'lustful aliens'. Unwelcome and a threat to Australian workers, these are the dark strangers in the days of the White Australia Policy, when race was used to classify people and bar them from entering the country.

These stories may even help explain some of the moral ambiguities and strange ironies that trouble us today.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
