Thought of the Week:

‘Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.’ 1Pe 5:6-7 (NIV)
We all need to be lifted up from time to time, especially now when there is so much talk about freedoms and coming out of lockdowns. But is this what the Apostle Peter was saying here? The Living God can lift us up despite lockdowns and our lack of freedoms. And looking further into this particular passage of Scripture, does being lifted up by God have something to do with humbling ourselves under his mighty hand? Peter seems to be saying this. (Note the little word that in the text.) To illustrate this further, Jesus knew that the disciples were arguing among themselves as to who was the greatest, so ‘He sat down, called the twelve disciples over to him, and said, “Whoever wants to be first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else.”’ Mark 9:35 (NLT)
There is a beautiful sequence here: humble yourselves under God’s mighty hand → he will lift you up → he will take your anxiety away → you will experience God’s caring love.

Season of Creation
Each year, churches across the globe come together in the liturgical Season of Creation, as we celebrate God’s beautiful Earth and take action to protect her.
Usually in September, this year we will be exploring these ideas in October.
Every week we will have a special focus to delve deeper and each week there will be a focus verse and an all-age action to follow. 3rd October will be Blessing of the Animals


Online Trivia Night raised $4445 for Vanuatu children's education.
Thanks to Katherine and all who participated in the Trivia Night. It was great fun and enjoyed by all.
This will assist with the very real problems being experienced by our friends in Vanuatu, since tourism income has virtually ceased there.

Parramatta Mission Winter Food Appeal
Despite being in lockdown we received and delivered around 30 bags of groceries and multiple winter beanies, lovingly knitted by a handful of ladies in our congregation. Thank you very much to everyone who contributed in every way. It is so much appreciated. Our thoughts are with everyone through this challenging time.


Garage Sale supports Hawkesbury's Helping Hands
