SEA SUNDAY – TODAY! Sunday 10 July 2022
Some of you may remember Reverend Inni from the Mission to Seafarers Victoria who came to speak at an HTPM Sunday service a few years ago. The Mission to Seafarers is an international organisation that provides welfare services to support the tireless work, isolation and hardships faced by the seafarers who connect the world and bring food, fuel and important everyday necessities such as medical equipment to our countries and cities. The Mission Buildings (717 Flinders Street Docklands), are fascinating and definitely worth a visit.
Sea Sunday is an opportunity to remember, acknowledge and pray for the work of the Mission to Seafarers.
HOLY TRINITY BELL !
Who knew the bell from the HTPM church building that was on the corner of Bay and Graham Streets, was hiding in our back courtyard! Bishop Philip has written to TMA to ask TMA readers if anyone has a bell stand that might be suitable.
“We want the bell to sound in Bay Street, Port Melbourne – calling folk to worship; recalling God is present; reminding us that ”all time is God’s time”, as St. Benedict says!”
ANGLICAN BOARD OF MISSION (ABM) PEW REFLECTIONS – Sunday 10 July 2022
Today we read the well-known story of the Good Samaritan. It’s hard for us to imagine how this would have sounded to Jesus’ original audience as Samaritans were regarded as schismatics or perhaps even as heretics, but the thought that one of them might be good was a virtual impossibility. Nonetheless, Jesus commands his hearers, and us, to ‘go and do likewise’. It means we must help those even whom we revile. It’s not easy, but it is, at its heart, a simple command.
- Jesus Christ, you show me that even those I despise can teach me something, and that they are worthy of your love through me. Help me never to forget this teaching, and to love each person I meet so that I may honour you.
