They Dared to Challenge

The theme for NAIDOC Week in 2012 is “They Dared to Challenge.” In its strictest application this is referring to those Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who established the Tent Embassy. However, the theme has much wider applicability and that is what should be focussed on. Jesus Christ stands as our role model in challenging the inappropriate structures, prejudices, falsely established religious teaching and domineering power structures of his day. He dared to challenge. William Booth also dared to challenge the inappropriate structures of his day that oppressed people and caused them to be marginalised. It is in this spirit that some outstanding Aboriginal Salvationists have dared to challenge by standing for Christ and serving him in The Salvation Army.
