RICE RALLY is an evangelistic event run every year for high school students in Sydney. The 2016 RICE RALLY was titled 'SOS'.
When a ship is about to sink, when we feel lost , stranded at sea or absolutely helpless and hopeless, when we get caught up in the monotonous everyday rituals and fractured relationships around us, when we prioritise our own needs and desires, when our world is broken and in need of salvation- we need to send out a signal of distress – SOS – save our souls.
But salvation – it’s a word that seems hardly relevant now since there’s ‘nothing that I need to be saved from’, right? We live in a society that promotes a strong culture of self-definition and individual merit, where everything we have can be achieved through hard-work and our own deeds. But the truth of the matter is that there is one thing we definitely can’t attain by ourselves – Salvation. Salvation from sin that can only come from the one, true and living God!
