• Did you know that on Good Friday this year the twenty-metre-high steel Forgiveness Cross was officially ‘opened’?
  • The Forgiveness Cross stands on top of a large hill two and a half hours west of Alice Springs (basically, the middle of Australia) on Memory Mountain. Memory Mountain is named thus in memory of four young indigenous evangelists who first preached the gospel in the Western Desert over a century ago.
  • The local indigenous community have been working towards building this for over a decade. They want to show our nation that Australia finds true and ultimate unity under Jesus. Many things can unite some people for some time in some ways but the greatest and deepest and most long-lasting unity comes through our being united to God.
  • So, if you are at/near Alice Springs, consider visiting Memory Mountain and rejoicing with your indigenous brothers and sisters in our unity in Christ.

  • It is right for you to initially feel guilty and bad about your sins; you should. It is appropriate for you/me to inherently feel ‘dirty’ in God’s sight. So, we should feel absolute delight that God can and does forgive every one of your many sins through His Son (if you’ve repented)! Christ’s death is the payment price that God himself paid so us undeserving sinners can be forgiven and ‘clean’:

    “… in Christ God forgave you …. Christ loved us and gave himself for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” (from Ephesians 4:32, 5:2)

  • So, if you know the forgiveness cross, THANK GOD who meets our need
