Of Interest: Christmas Billboard at Progressive Christian Community Attract Public and Media Attention

Auckland Progressive Community, St Matthews-in-the-City has created significant media and public discussion through one of its Christmas billboards, displayed by the church. In a media release after another day of physical attacks on the billboard, Vicar Glynn Cardy said "We have no regrets about bringing this discussion about Jesus’ origins and the nature of the Christian God into the public sphere – into homes, workplaces, universities and the internet. We are glad that discussion about Santa, food, and present-buying was momentarily usurped by a discussion about Jesus." You can view a video of Glynn Cardy reflecting on the billboards here.
