My name is Chris Thomas. I’m a fortunate husband, a father of three and Dad to five. I’m an advocate of foster care as an expression of the gospel. I’m a pastor at Raymond Terrace Community Church, a regional church based in the Hunter Valley, Australia. I mostly write about the gospel and how it informs both work and rest.

This weekend marks our federal election, an occasion marked by many Australians as a complete joke. That being said, how should we as followers of Christ consider politics and the myriad of issues that come to the surface during these periods of time?

To answer those questions (and others similar), I’ve supplied the following links taken from the Gospel Coalition Australia site.

For issues that have arisen during the lead up to the election:

I also snuck an article in on TGC Australia that had nothing to do with the election (just in case you’re as sick of it as I was):
