A Destiny Together
Justice for First Peoples
A Week of Prayer and Fasting
17-23 March 2014
What is A Destiny Together?
A Destiny Together is a call from the Assembly of the Uniting Church in Australia to all Church members to participate in a week of prayer and fasting for justice for First Peoples. It is a reflection of the Church’s commitment to work together for justice, recognition and reconciliation and to bear witness to the genuine transformation of relationship that is possible through God’s love in Jesus Christ.

Why do people rush to embrace their mortality by inviting the church to smudge their foreheads with ash and dust.
For the faithful and the questing, this act enables reflection on the inevitability of death, and further, rather than a thing of dread, the realisation that our mortality when integrated into the Christian journey and the Way of Jesus becomes a resource for spiritual depth and the new life anticipated at Easter. Stillness, prayer, reflection leads to the wider appreciation of how a seed dies and is buried in order to germinate, sprout and grow, yielding yet more fruit
Next Wednesday, March 5, 7.30 pm opens the joint 2014 Lenten Journey for the Church of Christ and Uniting Church at Wembley Downs.

Nothing like a bit of celebratory jazz before a festive dinner.
Young members of the congregation hold the Christmas Bowl aloft at its local launch. Gifts to the Christmas Bowl fund a variety of projects around the world in partnership with local churches. It as part of the National Council of Churches Act for Peace programme.
A multi-generational crowd, including three sharp nonagenarians, enjoyed last night’s annual quiz night. Over $700 was raised for the local combined churches Food Pantry.
As the September 7 election approaches, it seems that whatever the outcome, we can expect no respite where asylum seekers are concerned. Australia now has one of the most entrenched draconian official responses when meeting those fleeing from harm.
This church has no shame in standing against the tide and urging a change in conversation that welcomes refugees and provides a safe haven where dignity and peace can be restored.
