This week’s National Carers Week, from 10 to 16 October, is a time to recognise and celebrate the 2.65 million Australians and 430,000 New Zealanders who provide unpaid care and support to a family member or friend.

Many people in our Lutheran communities are carers and we can remember and celebrate them this month.

Messages of Hope by Lutheran Media has excellent resources that reflect the reality of being a carer and offer hope through this season. Episode 2 of the ‘Chronic Pain’ series at www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKlaRVk6rUY&t=2s explains what it means to be a carer and how to support carers.

You can order a discussion guide at www.messagesofhope.org.au/product/chronic-pain-ebook/ to use as a Bible study with small groups or families; it can also be packaged with the ‘Chronic Pain’ DVD series available from www.messagesofhope.org.au/product/chronic-pain-dvd/

Let’s give thanks to God for carers, honour their work, and support them in this essential role.

Ways to recognise and support carers in your church and wider communities include:

If you would like support to celebrate National Carers Week or Christian Care Sunday in your congregation, email me at anna.kroehn@lca.org.au

Anna Kroehn is the LCANZ’s Christian Care Sunday project officer.
