Crucified Water Crucified Land. “This image captures the idea that we have and are crucifying the land that sustains us. Knowing what has been done in the name of Christ, from misguided care of Indigenous people to the exploiting of water while claiming our right of stewardship … there is so much I cringe about. Yet, the story is redemption. New life after passion and crucifixion, a way of peace with the universe that brings great hope and redemption.” – Artist Rachel Peters, member of the Warrnambool Uniting Church.
