Today is a national day of prayer for Christian Schools. As per our email last week, schools across the country, from AACS and other branches of Christian education, are all putting aside time today for prayer. We will be united in prayer for our leaders and our schools as the Parliament begins its final sitting fortnight for 2018 and as they consider legislative changes that will affect faith-based schools.
The AACS Board will be praying together from Canberra today too. We will be meeting with the Minister for Education this morning and then also looking at the future strategy of AACS as well as the religious freedom debate we are in the midst of.
Please take the time to read the email below. It will give you updates about the religious freedom issue, but will also give you some overdue broader updates about other issues affecting our schools.
Grace and peace to you all on this national day of prayer,
Erik and Annette
