Dear Friends,
What a truly wonderful liturgy last Sunday with masses of daffodils and just brilliant children here for baptism – thanks again to everyone who made the day so memorable – the extra good news is we have so far raised $720.00 for the Cancer Council – well done and thanks.
Today we are fortunate to have our ‘Camelot’ concert in the church at 2 o’clock – when I was a child we used to have what they called a ‘PSA’ or ‘Pleasant Sunday Afternoon’.  Today will be one of those as we are transported to King Arthur’s magical and wonderful kingdom.
Monday is the Annual Commemoration of Victory in the Pacific, when the forces of Imperial Japan surrendered and the Pacific became peaceful again – as we pause to remember let us pray that all of us, governments and people of the Pacific and other nations may remember the horror, futility and destruction brought about when one nation imagines it has the right to possess and conquer other nations.
Stay safe
Grant

Our prayer for days ahead is for balance, consideration and listening

The gospel calls us to be people of Hope even in the darkest hour. Maybe you can find time to say an extra prayer for all those in such desperate circumstances in Australia and the rest of the world?

I offer you this prayer that hopefully you will find time to pray each day_

God of the nations, whose sovereign rule brings

justice and peace,

have mercy on our broken and divided world.

Shed abroad your peace in the hearts of all

and banish from them the spirit that makes for war,

that all races and peoples may learn to live

as members of one family

and in obedience to your law,

through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

The Australian Prayer Book.
