God has called us as Christians to be 'salt' and 'light' in our world. This includes every sector of society, including government. It is exciting to see more and more Christians aspiring to roles in politics. This is so important as we need people with Christian values in these influential positions.
Some people are called to have a voice 'in' politics. Others are called to be a voice 'into' the political arena. One such person is Jim Wallace, director of the Australian Christian Lobby. Jim and the ACL are doing an outstanding job bringing a Christian perspective on the key moral and social issues of our day to the key political influencers of our nation.
Recently, the ACL gathered over 150 Christian and church leaders from a diverse range of the body of Christ to Canberra to meet with the Prime Minister, Mr John Howard, and the Opposition Leader, Mr Kevin Rudd. The Prime Minister and Mr Rudd addressed the group and answered a variety of questions. I was privileged to be a part of this significant event.
