A visit to a local farmer's was one of the highlights of the Moderator's visit to the 150th Anniversary of Narrabri Methodist/Uniting Church. We also toured around the areas where I travel - Pilliga, Coonamble, Walgett and Burren Junction. This involved meeting some community people and leaders. We also met with Gomeroi Elders of Gunnedah. We heard of their concerns for their sacred sites, plus water damage to the Darling River system from mine work across their lands. The 150th Service and Lunch was a great success. Kara, who edits this Blog, with her team did the church proud.
We will be covering the Patrol ministry team over the coming months in this blog. I hope you get to know the team - all of them do a great job reaching people in rural remote areas of NSW. As we head to Easter we remember that Christ came to walk among those at the margin, bringing the word of God through words and acts of love and compassion. This is our call - to be the face of God in the remote lands and to those who are just on the edges of our community.
