ABM was sad to learn of Bishop Saibo Mabo’s death. Bishop Mabo was the National Torres Strait Islander Bishop between 2002 – 2015. He also represented the Anglican Church of Australia for a time on the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ecumenical Council.
As this interview two years ago with the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) demonstrates, Bishop Mabo’s faith was strong and helped guide him and his community on their journey with Jesus. http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2015/08/27/4301140.htm
The prayers of ABM are with his family at this time.
May he rest in peace and rise in Glory with Christ.
