Partnerships Take Time

Just like the woman at the well (John 4:1-4), partnerships take time. Time to sit and wait; time to share stories; time to reveal true dreams and desires; time for honesty and trust; and time for God to be at work.


Reflection of the Week - 8th November 2022

On All Saints Day we recall the great cloud or crowd of witnesses who have gone before, who are with us now, and who will be beyond our time. On All Souls Day we remember those who have passed away. What a wonderful annual reminder that God’s love reaches across all time and space.


Reflection of the Week - 1st November 2022

Wealthy, corrupt and unscrupulous. Shocking the gathered crowd and righteous folk. Unsettling Law, tradition and culture. Sharing food and wine as if friends or even family. Why would he do that? I mean Jesus.


Statement: Racial Justice for Turvey Family

As we hear the news (‘The Australian,’ Tuesday, 25th October 2022 and across various other media outlets) of the tragic story of the death of young Noongar boy Cassius Turvey, our hearts are shattered into a million pieces. Each piece is a painful reminder of two centuries of dispossession, racism and violence.

Reflection of the Week - 25th October 2022

Many people have observed that the human condition seems burdened with a dualistic way of understanding reality. This divided nature of our minds creates a spiritual warfare within us. It creates a conflict between sin and righteousness, which we often lose.


Musical volunteers ‘good for the soul’

It is no secret that music is good for the soul. Coordinating Chaplain at Resthaven Paradise and Resthaven Leabrook, Rev Cate Baker, witnesses firsthand the benefits to residents that music brings, with the help of musical volunteers.


Reflection of the Week - 4th October 2022

While Jesus predicts that people will die of fear ‘as they await what menaces the world’ (Luke 21:26), he says to his followers: ‘Stay awake, praying at all times for the strength to survive all that is going to happen, and to stand with confidence before the Son of Man’ (Luke 21:36).
