With Love to the World – The Times they are a changing
Once upon a time, when you wanted to buy something you needed cash. Now there are only two places I regularly go that still require it. One of those is the car park for the Nova Cinema, and the other is my local Thai take-away shop. I don’t even need cash for the parking meter anymore.
As a mark of this changed financial world, there will now be ….
New ordering arrangements for With Love to the World subscribers.
Collecting cash, writing cheques and hand delivering booklets was normal once, but it is no longer the best use of a volunteer’s time. After the current edition, With Love to the World will revert to individual subscriptions.
If you are a current subscriber, the details you need are on the back of the booklet or go to the website www.withlovetotheworld.org.au to either download the form or order by phone.
Julian Hamilton visit
Our favourite Irish Methodist Chaplain at Trinity College Dublin, Julian (Jools) Hamilton will be the guest preacher at Brunswick Uniting on Sunday 4th August. We are hoping to have a lunch after church for young adults (18 to 35), where Jools can share a bit more of his wisdom about faith, life, the Bible and all things good.
Bring a Plate to Share Morning Tea
On the first Sunday of August & September you are invited to Bring a Plate to Share for morning tea. This will both help to ease the pressure on our regular morning tea providers with a few taking a break and give us all an opportunity to share our favourite treats in a low stress kind of way. The Morning Tea Helpers will arrive just that bit earlier to help set things up ready. Please bring your plate to the kitchen before worship on Sunday 4th August.
