Gordon’s weekly message

Man cries as he walks on the street while passing through a damaged statue of Lord Buddha a day after an earthquake in Bhaktapur

Friends

This weekend we are continuing our times of considering how we are writing our “next chapters” in the post-Easter story. So many thanks to Bec and to Beattie who shared part of their ‘chapters’ with us last Sunday.

This Sunday in the 830 and 1030 service we are hearing from Jill Robertson and Janice Munro, with their ‘chapters’ in the story that the bible leaves so deliberately unfinished.

In the 945 service we are focusing on the wonders of teachers. People who help us learn and develop, both in formal times and informal times. What have you learnt recently? How? With whom? Who are the ‘teachers’ that you remember and value even to today?

Please also remember that it is our congregational lunch this Sunday, starting shortly after 1130.

Also on this Sunday (& only this Sunday so don’t miss out) we are carrying out a survey about what it is that people value most about Kippax and its ministry? There will be boards in the foyer ready for you, so give it some thought before you come (& offer a prayer of thanks for those things that you value here)

Finally, as we move into our support for the relief in Nepal (as indicated in a separate email) we can give thanks not only that the congregation raised over $1500 for Vanuatu recently, but also that Zoe Marshall, who spoke with us a few weeks ago, is returning to Vanuatu this weekend. She wont be able to return to her original home community because of food shortages there, but will be working in another village community on Pentecost Island. Please continue to pray for her as she returns

Grace and peace

Gordon
