We met with the Prime minister today in his office in Canberra. According to our records, this type of meeting doesn't happen very often. He is a genuine person with a great passion for Australia. His concerns are compelling and his plans for the country are in large measure consistent with our concerns.
It was deeper than a "meet and greet." We couldn't afford to confine ourselves to pleasantries. His awareness of not only our historic foundations, but theological background was impressive. He showed us great respect by his preparation, frankness and hopes for the future. As partners in so many efforts across the country, we are fortunate to be known so well and valued. God bless Mr. Rudd.
1 Peter 2:17 (MSG)
17 Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government.
