On Epiphany 3B, 24th January we welcomed Rev. Carlynne Nunn, former member of our congregation as our preacher.
Responding to Jesus call to the fishermen in Mark’s gospel we reflected on on love, community and evangelism. As we reflected on community we rejoiced in the recent release of refugees from places of detention.
Acknowledging the request to observe a Day of Mourning on the Sunday before Australia Day we paused briefly to remember the violence and dispossession inflicted on our First Peoples. We offered the Acknowledgement of Country from the UCA Assembly and UAICC resources. Our worship service for 31st January, Aboriginal Sunday, is being prepared by the Walking Together group using resources prepared by Common Grace.
