Ower’s Corner, about 50km from Papua-New Guinea’s capital Port Moresby, is visited each year by thousands of Australian pilgrims, yet it’s not a church. It’s a place where we honour those who fought Australia’s most important military victory of World War 2. Our men at Kokoda represented the very best of Aussie values, of real courage and self-sacrifice, of not leaving their mates behind. In fact, they demonstrated the very highest values of humanity.
We all walk, not the Kokoda Track, but the track of life. A life made possible by One who gave His life that we may live.
