The night was a good time in the planing dates flew in and out then we got one I was free they where free so lets do it. The flyers were sent out to area and some places in the area . Then we set up food and table even made a sacred place from 3 trampolines,we covered it in green leaves and a cloth with leave painted on it. Next the gap before the people arrive . But come they did, it not like other gathering it's different but we soon Seattle in ,like old friends .
We put names of loved ones and requests for a good season next year and then after a slow start the right person went first and all followed NLAG centre for Loss & Grief Leader Trudy and others joined in the services I had 2 prayers it was a moment of change from Chaplain to Minister and they all said it was good.
A few of those who came young and old It was said in the over the meal it's good to have you guys here plus Rev Phill as a Minister it is different to just talking up the Paddock come and do it again' and so on . The fact we as a group we came back and I as individual (have kept coming) they felt cared for in a real way the NLAG ,Uniting and Uniting Church showed we care for people in pain (this area over the last 4 years have been in drought , had a triple murder in the Community and lost a great leader to Suicide and a number of key people die from Cancer and other things CWA lost a lot of great cooks) so they needed our prayers and love. I drove from Nyngan to Armidale to preach at my former partner in crime now neighbor Induction service in a wonderful old church . as I was bit worn down I then went had my last Cataract operation as the weeks go by I can know read better as my eyes sort themselves out I am using some make do glasses for read but I drive now with no glasses other than my old clip over "sunies" aim is for some cool ray bands (has it help spelling and punkuation) No God bless
