September 2018 marks the 80th anniversary of the passage of the first Labour Government’s landmark Social Security Act. On the eve of this important anniversary, it is timely to reflect on the current deficiencies of our welfare state and how the vision of its founders can be renewed and more fully realized.

The University of Otago invites you to hear Jonathan Boston,
Professor of Public Policy - Victoria University Wellington speak at a lecture on Wednesday 15 August 5:15 - 6:30 pm

You will have heard that a giant of the faith has gone to be with the Lord. Dr Billy Graham died peacefully aged 99 on 21 February from natural causes at his home in Montreat North Carolina surrounded by his family.

A group of Christian leaders is bringing together a memorial service to honour Billy (and Ruth) Graham in Auckland this
Friday 2 March 2018 at 7:30 pm (Please be seated by 7:15 pm) at Greenlane Christian Centre - Marewa Road, Greenlane

Many New Zealanders owe Billy Graham a huge debt of gratitude. On his first visit here in 1959, his six meetings attracted 355,000, with about 16,000 recorded responses to the invitation to follow Christ. On his second visit in 1969, his five meetings attracted 235,000, with about 7,500 recorded responses.

Lives were transformed. Future Christian leaders of wide influence were born again, whole families were redeemed, and generations born since are now following the Lord. The impact of Billy Graham's ministry is incalculable.

If you were a doctor and had any moral, religious, or ethical concerns about euthanasia, what would you do? This is a "serious problem, with physicians put in the impossible position of having to choose between their conscience and being allowed to continue to care for their patients." Dr John Lee, FIAMC president.

"The WMA (World Medical Association) has plans to introduce two policy measures to facilitate worldwide abortion and euthanasia by curtailing doctors’ conscientious objection”.

The Justice Select Committee has extended the date for submissions until midnight Tuesday 6 March. Silence on this issue can be interpreted as support.

If you are concerned about euthanasia being legalised in New Zealand, make your submission to the Justice Select Committee now. And while you're at it, help or encourage someone else to make theirs.

Israel's Ministry of Tourism counted 2017 as a record year for tourism. Specifically, spiritual tourism for Christian pilgrims has shown an increased interest in visiting Holy Sites. Since the Old City of Jerusalem appears to be a maze of different sites, the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) has built an App that highlights the Way of the Cross - The Via Dolorosa - using the 14 Stations of the Cross.

Pilgrims from all backgrounds can easily navigate through the city with this off-line App that includes an off-line map (navigating the city by GPS). Even if you never will visit Jerusalem, the App is also a wonderful tool to be used during Lent and highlights Jesus’ last journey from His condemnation to being laid in the tomb.

The 14-station video guide, available in the Apple App Store and on Google Play, offers historical information, Biblical references and inputs for reflection that help deepen the understanding and experience of the way of the cross.

To download the App please visit the site: http://www.theviadolorosa.org

Please watch Nick's story and consider the message of hope it brings. In countries where euthanasia is legal, it could be very different.

If you are concerned about euthanasia being legalised in New Zealand, send your submission to the Justice Select Committee. This matter is now very time-sensitive: Submissions to the Justice Select Committee close on 20 February 2018.

It is neither rational (on grounds of equity) nor possible long-term to limit medically-assisted suicide/euthanasia to particular groups of people, or to specific conditions, or only to those aged 18 years or over. As has occurred overseas, there would be the same inevitable erosion of boundaries here in New Zealand.

Suicidal thoughts are usually associated with depression. Research shows that when depression is properly treated, most people change their minds about wanting to die.

Many people have strong feelings about this topic but, it becomes tangible when it affects you directly. In this short video, Baroness Ilora Finlay shares a personal story that reminds us that putting a medical timeline on someone's life can't always be accurate.

Allowing individuals the freedom to choose euthanasia rather than endure possible future suffering seems like an attractive option to many in our society, which places such a premium on individual freedom. Over time, however, there would be a growing tacit encouragement for people to choose to have their lives ended. As has happened in some other countries, voluntary euthanasia would inescapably lead to the increasing incidence of involuntary euthanasia, the ultimate breach of human rights.

Our whole society is predicated on a commitment to human life, and on respect and compassionate care for vulnerable people. So is our medical system, which we currently trust to care rather than to kill. This bill puts all that in grave jeopardy.
