South Australian Bushfires
Please pray for people on the Eyre Peninsula. We particularly pray for those who have lost loved ones. Please also pray for the small congregation at Wanilla, and for the ministry teams at churches like Port Lincoln, and Tumby Bay as they offer pastoral care.
The Moderator of the Uniting Church SA, Rev Dr Graham Humphris, has Written a pastoral letter to church members in the affected region in which he says: "It is in this awful situation that we, as part of your extended family known in the Uniting Church in South Australia, want you to know that we are grieving with you, praying for you and wanting to stand by you and support you in any way that we possibly can."
The President says that in this Sunday of mourning he makes the sad request to our congregations to now include at least one member of the Uniting Church who died in the fires and remember the many other families who are grieving in Southern Eyre Peninsular and beyond.
