“We want to walk with you, we don’t want to walk alone.”

This prosaic statement comes from Pastor Sir Doug Nicholls. It's from a sermon he gave at his church in Gore Street, Northcote. In the section, he is preaching to the white listener, and answers the rhetorical question 'Why should you care about Aborigines?'And he gave three reasons.
"I want to suggest three things why you should bother about the Aborigines. Firstly, we belong to great family of God and he had made out of one blood all nations of men. Secondly, why you should bother about the Aborigines, we're a part of the great British Commonwealth of nations. And thirdly, we want to walk with you, we don't wish to walk alone." 1
The Gore Street congregation was indicative of this positive thinking. Members were white, black and mediterranean. Nicholls seemed to believe in Aborigines taking responsibility, but not being exclusive. Rather, he was a superb bridge-builder. Welcome at service clubs, cabinet meetings, football games and churches of every denomination.

    Pastor Nicholls writes truly meaningful words which matter to all who love humanity. Words which mean more now than ever before. An opportunity to reach out to your follow neighbour and say we can walk together and work this out for a positive outcome/future
