Dear ACL Supporter,

I’m so thankful for your ongoing support to ensure a strong voice for values can be heard in Australian politics. Your gifts and prayers are truly making a powerful impact on our society – for good.

The team and I have been overwhelmed by the response to our end-of-financial-year appeal from friends like you. Your generous support means we have been able to enter the new financial year on a firm financial footing, and can confidently move ahead with key opportunities like the upcoming Victorian election and the ACL National Conference.

I want to encourage you to take a good look in the newsletter at the great things that you have helped achieve in the last 12 months, and the crucial work ahead … especially over the next six months.

But, as you do, I want to remind you of an important truth from Scripture, which says “God reigns over the nations; God is seated on His holy throne” (Psalm 47:8).

At times, I think it’s easy to get caught up in thinking we can somehow change the world in our own strength. But the Bible reminds us that God is the one in control. And so it is only right that, before we stand for action, we should first be on our knees in prayer.

With God’s blessing, and with your support, ACL can continue to bring a Christian influence to politics in Australia. And whether you can give, pray and advocate a little or a lot, what’s most important is that we are in this together.

Thank you for your partnership to work towards a more just and compassionate society. We are grateful for your support!

God bless,

Lyle Shelton

Managing Director
