One of our defining moments in history was in World War I, when Australian and New Zealand soldiers fought together during the Battle of Gallipoli. Today, regardless of the good humored ribbing that goes on between Aussies and Kiwis, and the rivalry in sport, there is a sense of affinity one has when being on the other side of the world and hearing the familiar accent from across the room.
The Anzac spirit was encapsulated by Charles Bean, Australia's official war historian, when he described it as the following:
Anzac stood, and still stands, for reckless valor in a good cause, for enterprise, resourcefulness, fidelity, comradeship, and endurance that will never own defeat.
The idea of this shared blog, is that together we can achieve more than apart, our desire being to equip and encourage you as you tackle life in ministry. For what greater cause is there other than Christ for us to show boldness, ingenuity, endurance, faithfulness and mateship?
We are excited as we begin this journey and invite you to join with us!
