    Voices for Justice 2010 participant , Matt Anslow, reflects on his time in Canberra

    Here I am, third day in. I didn't get to blog last night, as I went straight to bed after sessions finished... The reason for such laziness was so that I could get up at 5:30 to get to Parliament House on time for a session with PM Kevin Rudd and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott. More about that later.

    Yesterday was a great day (once again). I did some sessions on Climate Change and Political Policy Making, which were both incredibly helpful. At night we ran a public service of repentance out the front of Parliament House, hearing from Roshan Mendis (our international guest from Sri Lanka) and others about the needs in our world and the need for a personal response in the way we live our lives individually and collectively. It was a powerful experience to stand with 300 others Christians who care about justice, kindness and the political process.
