Led by Christians, Never Again is Now is standing against antisemitism in Australia. With events planned around the country, this is a movement of solidarity among Australians against anti-Jewish racism and hatred. It is for such a time as this. And it needs you.
The cultural value of the unborn, of ‘unwanted children’, is sadly, they have no rights and no value, but are seen as a problem to be removed as cost-effectively as possible.
There is powerful help for women who have gone down the road of abortion — that help comes from Jesus Christ, Who freely gives to all who believe.
When we consider some of the attacks on life in our culture, it is easy to give way. It’s easy to be quiet or to keep our head down, or to just mutter within our own safe circles. And it’s tempting to wash our hands.
In this Life-sustaining mission, like Deborah, through faith, we are called to help others trust that God's Love and new beginnings remain available to them amidst impossible-looking circumstances — even if they feel they've made a mess of their lives and it's too late.
There are only six days remaining in this year's prayer and fasting campaign for the unborn (21 January–10 February). But there is much happening, with Zoom prayer meetings and the Adelaide Walk for Life!
It is still Jesus’s deep love calling us to obey His instruction to weep – may we enter into deep intercession, travailing and weeping over the babies being put to death by legalised abortion.
Many times, as we stand for life and mention the objective of “no legalised abortion in Australia,” we are immediately confronted with well-meaning people who bring up exceptions – circumstances that make it ok to have an abortion.
Many people experience grief over abortion – not just the woman who has had the abortion, but the fathers, grandparents, siblings; anyone who knows about the abortion can suddenly feel overwhelmed and powerless.
Adoption is God’s idea, and it is a great idea! God wants every child to be embraced by someone who will care for them, protect and provide for and most of all love them. His perfect plan can also mean, “He marked out our horizon [destiny] beforehand.”
A brephos is a brephos inside the womb or outside the womb. A baby is a baby in the womb or after birth. As Christians, we know this instinctively, and I am convinced the world does too.
Compassion is a huge part of our heavenly Father’s character and ways! Jesus was constantly moved by compassion for people. He also taught parables highlighting the characteristic of compassion as a vital part of Heaven’s Kingdom culture.
The preaching of the Gospel, brought to Australia with the First Fleet, spread through the nation, and the Word of God became the foundation for our government, our courts of law and our education system. This set Australia on solid ground.
I miss my son today. That goes without saying, I suppose, since I miss him every day. But on this day, the pain is particularly sharp, the ache especially deep. I miss my friend and brother; I miss my protégé.
We were all once embryos! That unites us, one to the other. God made us all in the womb — the weak, the helpless, the unborn, the disabled, the slave, all of us. Therefore, let us be compassionate to all.
The Lord is near to everyone, and He wants us to learn to give Him our pain, fear, and unforgiveness. We can always be true to what we feel, and not ignore or bury what is going on inside of us. He is the best counsellor.

Jesus demonstrated compassion and mercy wherever He went, and there was always fruit for every interaction. May His body of believers do likewise in these days of great trial.
