To Ponder; Whenever I am about to meet God, I try to put my best foot forward.
Vallus Carnegius, 4th century mystic
Refugees I strongly recommend McAdam & Chong’s book Refugees – which
would be of interest to anyone prepared to understand that things are not always
exactly as the Government and media lead us to think. It’s in the local library.
One final quote “it is common parlance in the Migration Act to use the term
“Unlawful non-citizen”. However the Minister indicated that the terminology we
should use should be “illegal maritime arrival”.
Have a little think about why we did that.
Today we acknowledge and pay respect to the people of the Yugambeh Language
Group, the traditional custodians of this land on which we gather.
Sentence
I am the good shepherd,’ says the Lord. ‘I know my own and my own know me.’
John 10.14
Collect
Jesus, good shepherd of the sheep,
by whom the lost are sought
and guided into the fold:
feed us and we shall be satisfied,
heal us and we shall be whole,
and lead us that we may be with you,
where you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Good Shepherd Sunday
How would you describe your image of the Good Shepherd? Now switch your PoV
- Point of View - how does the Good Shepherd see our particular flock?
Are we in need of rescue?
ANZAC Day
What I’ve appreciated over these weeks of preparation for the centenary of the
landing at ANZAC cove has been the personal stories that we’ve heard – suddenly
family stories have become national stories – the sacrifice of ordinary people seen
against the backdrop of war with its heroism, courage and mateship lived in tension
with war’s sheer savagery, mayhem and terror.
Our sacred story of sacrifice for love and our salvation reminds us that we are
called to repeat the pattern, not simply stand back and admire and respect.

by bringing in non-perishable food – e.g. pasta, soup, tinned meat, tinned
vegetables, tinned fruit, spreads, long-life milk, toilet paper etc. TA
OUR INVESTMENT in SPREADING GOD’S WORD
Jesus is, as he tells us here, "the good shepherd." His sheep recognise his voice.

LEAVING A BEQUEST TO THE PARISH
I was asked a while ago about how to leave a bequest to the Parish. Let me
emphasise that this is very much a personal matter and you are not obliged to let
us know the details of your planned legacy. (Of course if you do we can thank you
and discuss with you how we might invest your intended gift in a way that matches
your values and honours your wishes.)
This is the form of wording that is required in your will. “I give and bequest the sum
of $ … (or the rest and residue of my estate) to The Corporation of The Synod of
The Diocese of Brisbane for the general charitable and religious purposes of the
Parish of Tamborine Mountain, and the receipt of the Diocesan General Manager
shall be a sufficient discharge to my executor or trustee.
PRAYING FOR THE COMMUNITY
Fae, a member of the Baptist community feels a strong call to pray, in union with all
Christians, for our wider community. She has a prayer group each Thursday at her
home in Tamborine. Ph 5543 87849
POTTING FOR THE SPRING FAIR
Time to start potting up for the Spring Fair – and of course if you’ve got plants
th
already underway – the Cake stall on the 9 is not too far away.
HUMOUR
The Washington Post invited readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it
by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.
Here are some winners:

To Ponder: How Close are you to the Shepherd –
# 1: Is he Just Behind You, or have you gone off alone?
An old Chinese proverb tells the story of a fox that was captured by a tiger. The fox
said, "You can't eat me because the gods have made me the leader of all the
animals." The tiger did not believe him, but the fox said, "Follow me and see if any
animal challenges me."
The tiger agreed to this and followed directly behind the fox as the fox began his
walk through the forest. To the tiger's amazement it turned out to be exactly as the
fox had said. Not a single animal they encountered challenged the fox. Indeed
every animal they met fled in sheer panic.
After several such encounters the tiger finally agreed that the fox was the leader of
all the animals and let him go. The Moral of the Story It is easy to remove
obstacles that oppose us when we have a tiger right behind us.
#2: We are not loved by God because we are precious. We are precious because
God loves us. Henri Nouwen.
# 3: Human unity is really less something we are called to create than simply to
recognise and make manifest. William Sloane Coffin
