My dear brothers and sisters,
Thanks to everyone who came to the peace prayer rally yesterday in Wollongong. It was a deeply moving and transforming experience for all present. Once again, I have already heard of the ripples of goodwill which have flowed from this initiative.
Thanks to everyone who participated and who continue to spread the word of our IP4P movement.
We continue to hold the victims and survivors of the Martin Place Siege in our prayers. As we do for the horrendous event in Pakistan of the massacre of the children and their teachers. We hold the murdered children in Cairns in prayer. There is so much need in our community to continue to pray for peace and to work for peace. There is still so much misunderstanding but, I believe we have made a lot of headway.
As Christians throughout the world now pause from the hectic commercialism of secular Christmas and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas that "God-is-with-us", we offer our Christmas prayers for the ongoing success of IP4P.
Thank you to one and all for the great energy invested in IP4P in the last quarter of 2014. We look forward to great things in 2015.
May God be praised in all our undertakings.
