On the final WilmsFront before Christmas 2021 we hear from one of Victoria’s political prisoners from another year of lockdowns. Pastor Paul Furlong will share his experience and how can we keep faith that freedom will prevail?
Paul is the Evangelist Pastor at the Revival Church in Narre Warren in Melbourne’s South East. Paul was charged with incitement for holding a Sunday church service during lockdown 3 on Valentine’s Day weekend. After holding an outdoor service during lockdown 4 in May he was imprisoned for 17 days for breaching his bail conditions. The incitement charges against Paul were resolved in November with a ruling in the Magistrates; Court of “No conviction, no undertaking or bonds, with a $1500 fine”.
Paul also runs a small business Lots of Fins Aquarium to support his church and its mission work in Asia to rescue children from poverty, sexual exploitation & trafficking, abuse & slavery! Because of the incitement charges against him plus a previous mask fine Victoria Police and Victorian Covid Officers targeted his business looking for CovidSafe breaches often staking outside his shop for many hours.
We finish the interview with Paul delivering a Christmas message of hope, compassion, and kindness. He has traveled out to the bush for a break before Christmas but his church services continue every week on Sundays.
