Abi Benham-Bannon’s friend Moz, who is one of the political prisoners/refugees on PNG, has released a beautiful new song: The Birds, by Moz with Ruth Mundy. It’s about “separation and a longing for freedom”. He’s trying to spread word about his music and message. Please pick up a leaflet at worship or read the story here and scan the QR Code to access the song and story.
