    Thanks everyone - I marked the occasion with a lovely lunch with some of the family (and lots of cuddlage with two of the littlies). David would have approved! :heart:

    I was baptised today at one of the few Anglo-Catholic parishes in the staunchly evangelical Diocese of Sydney.

    Oh, I'm an alien. I'm a legal alien. I'm an Anglo-Catholic in Sydney.
  • Congratulations, @PsalmbodyOnceToldMe! And prayers for you as you begin this new journey.

    I think you’ll find at least a few other Anglicans in or around Sydney (who will note they’re not “Sydney Anglicans”) onboard the Ship.

    AFAIK, none of the Aust Anglicans on board ship (albeit it that there aren't many of us left) is a Sydney Anglican.

    PsalmbodyOnceToldMe - congratulations on your baptism and prayers for you.

    There was a brief appearance from CJS a few months back after his attendance at GAFCON; probably 20 years after his last posting

    Now I'm curious. How did you get ousted as a Roman?
  • SojournerSojourner Shipmate
    Outed not ousted!!!!

    Haha time to get my eyes checked

    Joined the choir, and was assumed to be A-C. The giveaway was my admission that I’d never heard ( much less sung) “ Stand up, stand up for Jesus”.

    Today is the 10th anniversary of Julia Gillard's Misogyny Speech rebuff to the man who, as Prime Minister, declared himself responsible for women's policies and programs.

    Happy birthday in Heaven to my mum, who would have been 95 today. ❤️

    Well remembered👍

    I looked that speech up several years ago. It was amazing.

    Today would have been my late father's birthday. He died 10 years ago and I miss him.
  • HM King Charles III is 74 today. Many happy returns Sir 🎂
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Happy birthday to him indeed.
  • Happy Thanksgiving to our US shippies.
  • Thank you, @TheOrganist!
  • Thank you! I had a lovely Thanksgiving!
  • HuiaHuia Shipmate
    I think a national day of giving thanks is a wonderful tradition.

    I am giving thanks today that our tiny volunteer community library, with only about a dozen volunteers raised over $600 at our Open Day today. We were scheduled to hold it last Saturday, but the hall was double booked, and as the rain was a Noah like deluge we packed up and tried again today.

    It was lovely, there was a brief sprinkling, but it only lasted a few minutes. The foot traffic was amazing and there will be people who will now have a vegetable garden to supply them this summer thanks to the skills and generosity of the partner of one of the volunteers. Local business donated gifts for the nine raffles.(I hope I don't win the huge basket of dog supplies as I only have a cat) .

    The suburb in which I live may be one of the poorest in Christchurch - but that's only so far as income goes - in other ways we are very fortunate.
  • Well done, @Huia!
