NSW Government push to open retailing on previously sacred non retailing days

Happy Friday folks. The NSW Government is determined to expand retail trading on Boxing Day, impacting on work-family, work-community and work-faith balance of up to 90 000 retail workers and their families.

Sydney Alliance is working with the Take the Time campaign to protect work-family balance.

This web based survey being circulated currently has 121 respondents.

They would like to have 500 people participate – but want broad participation. If you would be willing to consider circulating this link by email or facebook that would be brilliant.

Of course, please do the survey first to check that you can support it – all the questions are optional.


One thought on “NSW Government push to open retailing on previously sacred non retailing days

  1. In NZ the Catholic/Anglican lobby is way too powerful – the Sunday Sabbath mob will die before they will pass over Easter, let alone Xmas.

    1. Whoever is weak in faith, give them a hand, and do not be divided in your opinions.
    2. For there are those who believe in eating everything and the weak are vegetarian.
    3. The one who eats everything should not criticize the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything, should not judge. For they all have communion with God.
    4. Who are you to judge the servant that is not yours? If he stands, he stands for his master, and if he falls, he falls for his master. Thus he upholds whom he upholds, for it is in his hands whom he raises.
    5. There are those who judge one day by the next (Live day by day). And there are those who judge all one’s days. Every human being justifies themselves through their own perspective.
    6. Those who approach each day on its own merits, do so in the interest of their master.* And however someone eats, they do so according to their master and in confession to their God.*
    7. For there is no human being among us who lives for themselves. And there is no human being who dies for themselves.
    8. Because if we live, we live for our Lord, and if we die, we die for our Lord. And if we live thus and if we die, we belong to our Lord.
    9. Because of that, Christ also died and lived and rose, so he may be Lord of the dead and the living.
    10. You, however, why do you judge your brother? Therefore, you too, why do you discriminate against your brother? For we are all destined to stand before the podium of Christ.
    11. As is written in Scriptures,

    “I am Life, to me bows whoever kneels.
    And to me confesses every tongue.”

    12. Hence every human being among us shall answer on their own behalf to God.

    *14:6.1 Lit. Ar. id. construction: “And that not consider of the day, to his/her master do not consider.”
    *14:6.2 Lit. Ar. id. construction: “And who eats to his/her master he/she eats and to God confesses.”

    I love this line: “Every human being justifies themselves through their own perspective.

    And this: “Christ also died and lived and rose, so he may be Lord of the dead and the living.

    And: “While we were yet DEAD IN OUR SINS, Christ died for us….0(:->)
