Bishop Stuart's MicroBlog
The Bishops of the Eastern Church met last week on Tuesday 26th August 2014 and declared a 3 day fast and prayer for the Middle East.
This will commence on the 10th September to the 12th of September 2014. In solidarity, The National Council of Churches Australia are calling us to walk with them in this journey, feeling their pain and suffering for the persecuted people in the Middle East. Several prayer events have been organised in Sydney.
Emails continue to arrive for me concerning our Lamentation Sunday services from across the diocese. Many survivors have shared their appreciation of the service. Many found great comfort in the symbolism of pouring water / tears shed. Many felt supported and loved by our congregations. So thank you all for making this step together into the new and abundant life that our Lord offers us all.
