Antlions

Some of you have been on safari and will have enjoyed looking at the Big 5, they are a truly spectacular group of animals.

What you may not know though, is that there is also a Little 5 of some equally amazing animals.

We have the Antlion or Lion Ant in our garden and as the drought intensifies so does their hunting activity.

Soup Kitchen


Recently we were at a Hillsong leaders lunch and were enjoying listening to a guy called Perry Noble (we had no clue as to who he was but he was very good. Read more about him here). He posed the question: "If your church closed its doors tomorrow would it be missed by the community?".  This got me to wondering whether or not The Gathering would be missed after just about a year in Firgrove.

Hand on heart I believe that we would be missed. We'd be missed for a few reasons but one of the main reasons is our weekly soup kitchen.

Friends on Facebook are probably sick of me posting about this but I love serving the community through the soup kitchen and it has become my happy place as I spend quite a bit of the day preparing for it.

It's good to know we're so highly thought of by a church that no longer supports us. It's also a bit rich coming from a church that reneged on a commitment with no consultation and yet always seemed to want a little more than their pound of flesh.

I like the typo in there too!
