At each election ACL aims to serve Christian voters by helping them make sense of key issues and policies of concern to us all. We don’t tell people who to vote for, but we encourage people to make an informed vote.
I’m pleased to announce that a quality panel of Christian leaders, thinkers and subject matter experts have agreed to join with ACL to stage a live webcast to your church, should your church wish to participate.
The panel will consist of:
Rev Tim Costello, CEO World Vision Australia
Hon John Anderson, former Deputy Prime Minister
Hon Robert McClelland, former Attorney-General and retiring ALP member for Barton
Dr Megan Best, bioethicist and palliative care specialist
Dr Justine Toh, Centre for Public Christianity
The Make it Count 2013 Election Panel will be webcast live on Wednesday September 11 at 7:30pm Eastern Standard Time, 7pm Central Standard Time and on delay at 7:30pm for our WA viewers.
It will cover issues of poverty, marriage, religious freedom, refugees, sanctity of human life, protection of children and much more as Christians consider who they will vote for at the up-coming election.
Many of you participated in our very successful marriage webcast last year, viewed by around 25,000 people.
You may wish to speak with your church leaders about hosting the webcast at your church.
Promotional material including on-line registration for the webcast will be available soon.
Thanks for your consideration of this and I hope you can join us for what will be a significant election event.
On another matter, please tune in to the premiere of the docu-drama The Bible tomorrow at 9pm on Channel 9. Please Facebook or email your friends to let them know. It is important that we support the commercial television stations when they program Christian content.
