The first of May marks the tenth anniversary of The Reverend Noel Whale’s appointment as the locum priest of Holy Trinity Port Melbourne on 1 May 2011 ! Let us give thanks to God for the many blessings that we have received over the last decade and the support and encouragement of the Holy Spirit in our parish life and ministry with the community of Port Melbourne.
ANGLICAN BOARD OF MISSION (ABM) PEW REFLECTIONS:
Sunday, April 25 – The Fourth Sunday of Easter
For those of us who live in cities far away from shepherds and sheep, the image of Christ as the Good Shepherd can seem remote. But, at its heart, the image is one of supreme care. Sheep are precious to shepherds – they are not just a source of income but beings upon whom care and attention is lavished. Each one of us is precious in God’s eyes.
- Give thanks for God’s love and care towards each one of us, and pray that we might live in a way that thanks God for the tender care and blessings we receive.
- Give thanks for the work and witness of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican Council.
