God is Light Part 1

by frkeith

I don’t know about you, but I am pretty disappointed in the leadership here in this country. We have a dearth of leadership in our Political Leaders, and what is even more disappointing is that we have a lack of leadership in our church. We have seen the recent conviction of the former Catholic Archbishop […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
