  • Please continue to pray for each other from our Parish Prayer List:

We have some great stories in this edition, including news of how Melbourne Anglicans are contributing to the ongoing bushfire recovery effort in Gippsland and Wangaratta; an interview with Alice Achan, the founder of a remarkable project that is rebuilding the lives of vulnerable women in Uganda; and a piece by Oxford mathematics professor John Lennox about where a Christian worldview may fit in helping to make sense of the coronavirus crisis and its effects.

Please note that the Prayer Diary has not been included within the pages of TMA this month, but can be found at https://www.melbourneanglican.org.au/spiritual-resources/.

Poetry Corner

Mother’s Love

Her love is like

an island in life’s ocean,

vast and wide

A peaceful, quiet shelter

From the wind, the rain, the tide.

‘Tis bound on the north by Hope,

By Patience on the West,

By tender Counsel on the South

And on the East by Rest.

Above it like a beacon light

Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;

And thro’ the changing scenes of life

I find a haven there.
