Summary With characteristic hope and wisdom, Elizabeth 'Betty' Pike presents pathways for dialogue between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Springing forth from her own journey of discovery and self-acceptance, Betty writes as one who has was wrestled with understanding Aboriginality and its significance for today. This series of brief stories and meditations reveal the power of story for hope, healing and embracing Spirit. Betty draws on a spirituality grounded in the land and the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and by engaging with the central briefs and symbols of Christian spirituality, forged spiritual insights to enrich all Australians. The stories of heroic and inspiring Aboriginal persons - from history and contemporary times - are recounted, as well as powerful examples of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians working together
