The Sydney Morning Herald reported today of a proposal from NSW Young Labor to reintroduce national (community) service for graduating high school students. The group’s president, Sam Dastyari, particularly noted:
The community service could take many forms, from being an army cadet to helping with chores at the local retirement village. It could be helping community groups or churches or charities.
If it goes ahead (realistically I doubt it), I wonder what evangelistic opportunities having young people being “forced” into churches would bring.
