Annerley Baptist Community & Mens Shed

Prospective Ladies Day activities :-)

Last Monday we were privileged to have a celebration service for our brother in Christ, John Walker.
Rae and the family put together a very fitting service. Many good things about John were shared.
Afterwards Rae told me of some poems that some of John’s National Parks Association friends had written about him. I was intrigued.

How many Christians do you know whose non-believing friends write poems about?

Rae kindly gave me a copy. I asked if I could share some parts of them.
The poems were written by some obviously good friends who thought a lot of John. They were a good natured, funny, friendly poke about some of John’s funny ways on a field trip;
mostly about his insatiable desire for knowledge and also his less than ordered style.
And amongst the good natured ribbing there was also something else. One poem, “The Fellow I Slept In The Tent With” ends with these words:

“We all learnt a lot
- from HIS attitude, too”

And as I read it at home I wondered, if anyone wrote a poem about me what would they write?
And I thought “there’s time yet”.

If someone wrote a poem about you what do you think they’d write? Its worth thinking about.

Jesus is writing us into HIS poem.

There's still time yet to influence what's written.

Blessings,
Pastor Angelo

It is with much sadness that we let you know of the passing of John Walker into the presence of Jesus his Lord, in the early hours of this morning.
Please pray for Rae and the family.
A service will held at Annerley Baptist Church at 10:00am, Monday 3rd of September 2018.
More details will be released as they come to hand.

"Time went quickly!'
Thats a positive comment for a church conference.
Great to gather together yesterday and consider where we are and where God may be leading us as Annerley Baptist Church.

[08/11/18]   God is present every where.
When it comes to discerning His voice, a common error is to assume that God speaks only in particular situations or only in specific ways. This error minimises God's voice, usually with an assumption that God only speaks in religious settings.
The complementary error is to assume that if we are in a religious setting, then surely what we hear is God speaking and never the expression of evil. Neither is true; God is present in the world and evil is present within the church.
The danger is that we might miss the voice of Jesus because we are unwilling to hear him through the way by which he is speaking.
We reject what we are hearing and presume that this could not possibly be the voice of Jesus because of the source or the venue. However, a discerning person learns to be alert and attentive to the voice of Jesus in every part of life, even through unexpected channels of communication.
St Augustine of Hippo (354AD) was converted in response to the words of a child playing outside his window. His experience is a reminder that God may well surprise us and speak to us in ways and through those whom we might initially discount.
Adapted from Gordon T Smith’s
“The Voice of Jesus”

Blessings,
Pastor Angelo

[08/04/18]   Older saints who continue to minister effectively habitually engage Jesus in their “here and now” and listen for what He is saying to them.

Author Gordon T Smith in “The Voice of Jesus” says:
“We have a greater capacity to listen to Jesus if we are frank with ourselves about who we are, where we have come from, what we have experienced and we hope for. Only then can we develop the ability to attend to the inner witness of the Spirit.

We turn from sentimentality and pretense; we affirm things as they actually are, not as we wish they were. We strive to see and accept the actual circumstances of our lives rather than live and act as though they were otherwise.

This includes honesty about our history, what we have been and what we have done. But further, it includes accepting what has been wrong about our lives, whether we are to blame or not, whether or not we have been all that we had hoped to be.

It also means that we turn from the propensity or tendency to indulge in a wistful memory of some better time in the past.”

Lets individually and together strengthen the habit of recognising the past, but seeking what Jesus is doing now and for the future.

Blessings,
Pastor Angelo

Yes indeed.

Those associated with Annerley Baptist in the past may remember one of its past pastors Rev. Trevor and Joan Ross.
ABC was a significant part of the Ross family's - Faith, Andrew, Karis and Peter - life and ministry.
Trevor went to Jesus last night after a 2 week hospital stay, the last few days of which were in Palliative Care.
Though he will be greatly missed there is a deep joy and peace knowing he is with Jesus and we will see him soon.
Further details will be posted when finalised.
Any comments posted here will be passed on to Joan and the family.

The Major Reason Christians Doubt

Although there are other reasons, the major reason Christians doubt God’s love or even the truth of Christianity is that they expect God to act in ways other than He promised to act.

Its been a bit of a long path but we've got there ! 🤣
So thankful for all who contributed time & sweat to this
Special mention in dispatches for Isy, our concreter, and Bruce and Ken.

Work or wherever our Monday to Saturday world is, is where God also is already.
It is important for followers of Jesus to understand as much as we can about what it means to follow Him there as possible.
Highly Recommended if you can possibly make it.

Great equipping opportunity

Over 800 like-minded people, keynote presentations and over 70 elective workshops make IGNITE the best value training for your children’s ministry. Bring your entire team and equip them to impact a generation!

Great news and well deserved!
Congratulations Nazreen and God bless. :)

Our very talented volunteer Nasreen was awarded a Griffith Australia Day Award on the weekend for outstanding contributions to the community from her work here at Annerley Community Hub. English is one of five languages she has learnt through her time in Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and now Australia. She has devised an ordering system at the small change cafe so that she can take orders and translate them to our barista Jamie, who is hearing impaired. Together they make cofees and cakes which are sold in by donation, so that people who can't afford it can still enjoy the cafe. Congratulations Nasreen, you deserve it!

Wonderful worship time welcoming Pual & Clarissa Chiang and inducting Paul as our new Assistant Pastor.

[12/30/16]   2016 was a year that many people are happy is past. For me, I'm delighted in what God has been doing in our midst and through us in other people's lives. He hasn't been idle.
I'm really looking forward to 2017 and what He will continue to do through the various ministries and activities of this group of His people, through our services together, but most of all through each one of us as we open ourselves up to Jesus, allow Him to form His image in us and to touch the world that He loves so much through us.
Bring it on.

We so appreciated the ministry of those who served.
Thank you all.
