Bishop Stuart's MicroBlog

The walk with the cross began in Crookwell with a service at the Anglican Church after which we all made our way to the Roman Catholic Church. A combined crowd  of around 80– after a brief time of prayer – then walked to the Presbyterian, Anglican and Uniting Churches where we prayed and gathered more walkers. We took a break at the Uniting Church for refreshments then up through the main street to the park for an open air service. As with other such events I preached evangelistically and invited people to follow Jesus. The response was encouraging and I also gave away (signed!) New Testaments. The Reverend Margaret Campbell and her team organised  a superb Christ-honouring morning.
The final event is in Goulburn on Good Friday. We meet on the Cathedral Common at 10.45am. A service will be held at around 11.15 or so in Belmore Park.

On Saturday (12 April) Jane and I drove over the last hill about 1km from Taralga and were greeted by an enthusiastic ecumenical group ready to walk with the cross into town. The Reverend Sallyanne Hart had placed posters in shop windows advertising the event and people had come from across the district to share in the event. Half a dozen people carried the cross with me into town (including Sallyanne and Archdeacon John Barnes) and some 30 people (including children) accompanied us. 

Cross walk Taralga 2014

We walked right down the main street to Goodhew the skate park to be accurate! There in the ‘half-pipe’ Sallyanne had arranged for a worship band (from West Goulburn) and we all shared in a simple open-air service.  I preached on Christ’s death and resurrection and invited people to turn to Christ (and a number indicated that they had done so). As with all our cross-walk events, we gave away 150th NT’s (and I did sign a few too). The group then made their way to the pub for lunch. It was an another splendid cross-walk venture. Thanks be to God!
