Pushing Through Curtains
Pushing back through curtains upon curtains billowing in a foggy past there have been people whose sepia faces bring back faint memories of times and places now hovering between reality and imagination. There were school yard boasts and pranks too energetic now for the memory to understand Friends gone in distance and death. Vocations have come and gone and come again. My first students now have faces as worn as mine but their fresh faces live in their children. Years hold blessings and pain hopes and failures joy and aches. But when I turn And stop pushing At the curtains There is a future a timelessness … and a perfection.

The 5th Gospel
Friends and colleagues connected with Covenant College in Geelong are currently working on a project called “The 5th Gospel”.
A group of 4 went to Israel earlier this year to film and do research. Initially the intent was that this material could be used in the History and Bible courses at the College. However it is becoming obvious that this effort could have far wider uses in other schools, churches and homes. To this end the project is being introduced to the community on the 4th of August. If you are in the vicinity you are very welcome to come along and hear about this exciting venture.
