It was a sad day this past week when the New South Wales Parliament decriminalised abortion. Every foetus has a unique DNA imprint with extraordinary potential for humanity. It was a silly day when the ACT Parliament passed laws to legalise the possession and cultivation of cannabis for personal use. Wisdom is a gift from God, lacking in many decisions by parliamentarians. They need also be versed in logic as a philosophical imperative for our time.
Please note the invitation to those men who have attended a MenAlive weekend to breakfast at the presbytery next Saturday, followed by prayer and reflection.
We received a donation from Yass Rotary of $3,000 for our work in Timor Leste. At the Yass/Gunning Belun meeting held this week, it was decided to give this generous donation to the blind in Timor Leste. We bought land for their building program, including a training centre and offices. The container donated by AFP has turned out to be a refrigerated unit, which will be beneficial during the hungry season.
