Just over a week ago was election day in Australia. After being behind in the polls for years, the Government was returned with a small majority.
This was seen by most pundits as an important election, charting a course for Australia’s future. Christians seemed to be more active than in any previous election that I can recall. For some christians, the return of the Government was an unexpected triumph and even a miracle. For others, it was a defeat for their hopes, leading to despair.
The stark differences raise important issues.
