The Anglican News for March is now available.
On a beautiful autumn weekend in March 44 people gathered by the river in Tumut for our fourth annual Diocesan BCA (Bush Church Aid) camping weekend.
Sunday February 26 saw the first public Christian gathering in East Goulburn in over 40 years, with the launch of Rocky Hill Church – so named after a natural landmark of East Goulburn – under the leadership of Reverends Brian and Ali Champness.
In the past, under the moniker of ‘Modernism’, a strong access point for Evangelism was ‘Truth’. Establishing ‘Truth’ was an important Modernist project, which spread into every area of life, including how people thought about the world. It is well known that we now live in some kind of ‘After-Modernism’ culture and the suggestion now is that Godly Wisdom may be a much better entry point for sharing the transformative news about Jesus.
Russell Rollason, from the Public Issues Commission, considers the global water demand and supply problem, extending an invitation to pray for water during the season of Lent and to make use of the World Council of Churches Ecumenical Water Network's Seven Weeks for Water resources during Lent, which will take people on a pilgrimage of water justice in Africa.
