If we believe all people are equal we must live this

Reverend Peter Sandeman, chief executive officer of Anglicare SA, says believing in equality is meaningless without living it -

In our work at Anglicare SA, we follow the example of Jesus - he healed and served everyone, including those who were marginalised as sinners and the sick. He subverted the stereotypes of the self-righteous religious elite.

Jesus taught the Kingdom of God is for everyone, not just the pious, and He enjoyed the company of 'outcasts' – publicans, prostitutes, tax collectors and other 'sinners'.

Our concept of who are outcasts and sinners may have changed but the principle remains: "All are welcome.''
