From the Minister
Weather! Haven't we had a lot of weather so far in 2020?
We've had our share of Australian summer. that regular heat and unbearable heat.
Large parts of the country are in drought and we are on water restrictions. Then we
had rain and a deluge! There were ﬂoods. Then there was wind. The wind is just as
dangerous as the heat and the rain. Trees falling, roots off houses, powerlines down.
We have had a lot of weather!
The news from around the world is that there is a lot of weather about, everywhere.
Some of the ﬂoods in England are the ﬁrst in history for over 200 years Some of you weren't even born!
“.. and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake ﬁre, but the LORD was not in the ﬁre; and after the ﬁre a still small voice...”(l Kings: I911-13).
In the heats of our moments, in the wild turmoil of life and when we feel as though the waters are rising and we may go under, we listen for the voice of God. We still ourselves and listen for the still small voice of God. Some people's lives are devastated for various reasons. When I meet such people I do suggest a church service for them - that they may ﬁnd a place of shelter, calm and peace: a place where they may hear the still small voice of God and be renewed.
Peace be with you,

"For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.…He has saved us and called us to a holy life – not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace…given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time…" (2Tim 1:7,9)
