Empty Tomb future Hope for the World

by frkeith

I don’t know about you, but when I look at the world around us, I say to myself, “really? This is the best we can do as human beings?” There is despondency in the world over our leadership in our state, in our country and in the world. We tread down the vulnerable and the […]

When Doubts Arise

by frkeith

I don’t know about you, but from time to time I have doubts about my faith. Don’t get me wrong, I passionately believe that Jesus is raised from the dead, and therefore the world is changed irrevocably, even though it doesn’t actually look like it. I believe in the Trinity, even though I don’t understand […]

Easter – God Wins

by frkeith

I don’t know about you but one of the very annoying elements of Holy Week and Easter is the plethora of TV shows that have so called experts telling us why the Easter Story is a complete pack of baloney. Nice, and Spiritual, but that’s about it. They speak of the Resurrection going against the […]

Peace, What Peace?

by frkeith

I am a big fan of peace. I don’t really like conflict, I do thrive in the cut and thrust of parish life, but I do really appreciate the opportunity for my wife and I simply to go off somewhere nice and quiet, and get away from it all. The reality is that in our […]

Kindness – Random, or Planned?

by frkeith

I am not sure if you remember the TV show Random Acts of Kindness, or the other similar shows such as Undercover Boss. The latter was really about seeing how the company really worked, but there was the opportunity to reward hard working employees. The other show was about doing some kindness in a random […]

Organ Project Questions March 13

by frkeith

What about the Roberts Organ at Drummoyne is that not a suitable option? The answer takes a bit of time so please bear with me. The Roberts Organ is 13 ranks the Rendall is 16. So the Roberts would have to be expanded upon, which Jewkes himself acknowledges. The proposed HNB is 31 ranks. I […]

Hope in Death, Hope for Life – The Easter Message

by frkeith

Hi all, Sorry for the seemingly morbid title for this post. This month of March is a strange month for me and my wife. It is the month we celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary, thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!!! However, it is also the month we remember our son Daniel who died the day before our wedding […]

Regrets – I’ve Had a Few

by frkeith

In Frank Sinatra’s song “I did it My Way” he sings, “Regrets, I’ve had a few, but then again, too few to mention.” It is an interesting reflection on life, but probably one consistent with the man, and I suspect, many of us. I suppose he is flagrantly looking life in the face and saying, […]

Organ Project Financial Details March 5 2018

by frkeith

I want to, at the outset, apologise to you all for the delay in getting the financial details of the Organ Project. We did have the details ready to go in the time frame I identified, however, the financial situation has been changing, in a positive way, so rapidly, it made all that hard work […]
