SALT SHAKERS is a Christian Ethics Action Group based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
We aim to 'help Christians make a difference' in many different areas.
Contact details are included in the Contact Us section.
SALT SHAKERS was started by Peter and Jenny Stokes at Crossway Baptist Church in October 1994 following a three-year campaign to stop poker machines being placed in shopping centres. It rapidly grew into an independent, trans-denominational ministry reaching across Australia and overseas. A wide range of issues are covered. It is incorporated as a non-profit organisation.
SALT SHAKERS is guided by a Board, which includes people from a number of Christian denominations.
A Reference Panel was established in 2006 comprising various people who advise in their area of expertise.
In 2007 we launched Resistance Thinking to help young people understand the Biblical Christian worldview and engage effectively in discussion about the issues of our day. Cameron Spink is the co-ordinator of Resistance Thinking.
Resistance Thinking provides Articles, regular emails, video, podcasts ....
SALT SHAKERS E-News emails are sent out about current matters. From the end of 2012, when we ceased printing a monthly Journal, we have posted out a monthly 'Prayer Update' to those without email.
The E-News now includes a 'Weekly Update' on a wide range of topics - it includes News, Articles, Ongoing Campaigns and so on.
We also have smaller email lists on Islam and 'Global Warming' (from a realist perspective).
We are committed to helping individual Christians, Fellowships, Churches, Home groups, Bible Colleges and Christian Schools to be more involved in speaking out on ethics issues such as gambling, drugs, abortion, euthanasia and homosexuality.
