He complained to a friend as they were leaving the lecture hall: “He uses those big words so that people won’t know what he’s talking about, because if they knew what he was talking about, they’d know he didn’t know what he was talking about!” We pray for businesses and governments that build infrastructure and create public places, that they keep in mind the common good of all and weigh heavy the means they utilise to achieve their goals. We pray for architects who design buildings and gathering places, that their work might provide true experiences of beauty and build environments that provide opportunities for people to come to know God and each other more fully. We pray for the tradespeople who do the heavy lifting and invest long hours to maintain our way of life. We pray especially in thanksgiving for their families who make sacrifices which seem to go unnoticed and unappreciated in many areas of community. Rosters St Denis Part of Open House Building Exhibition Rosters for the period 29 November 2014 to the 31 May 2015 are being prepared. Last week the Parish Church was listed among 200 other buildings to be part of the Open House Building Exhibition in Perth. There were more than 100 architects who visited our church building over the two days. Could all those who are involved in any of the Ministries advise the Parish Office of their unavailability for this period by the 18 November 2014. It was a positive experience for the parish and has proved to be a wonderful Public relations event for the Parish.
