Rev Dr Ross Clifford, President of the NSW Council of Churches, said in his Easter message that we are at a moral crossroads as individuals and as a nation, and urged all Australians to face up to their moral responsibilities.
The message of Easter is to people of faith, radically committed to the Christian way of forgiveness and new life through Jesus.
The message of Easter is also to the wider community, warning that if we continue to go our own way, without conviction to acknowledge the sins of our age, we will be diminished as a community and nation, and miss the blessings of what might have been.
The message of Easter challenges our indifference and our self-sufficiency by showing us what we lack and pointing to the risen Jesus as the answer to the urgent needs of our time.
