Temore-Trungley Hall Guild/Fellowship …

… meets regularly and would love to welcome new members – not so easy these days. I thought I would tell you about a couple of interesting things, one a ‘one-off’ and the other is ongoing.

Recently, a long-time member, Ros Hartwig and her daughter, Karla, participated in the “Walk My Way” April project for ALWS. Ros began training earlier, doing many walks around Temora to get her body ready for the 26km walk in the Adelaide Hills, from Hahndorf to Beaumont, a suburb on the edge of Adelaide. A challenging walk with steep hills, following the pathways taken by pioneering women carrying their produce to market.

And “Yes” they made the full 26kms and were delighted with the money raised for educating children in disadvantaged countries! ALWS is aiming to raise enough money this year to educate 40,000 children, one for each child in Lutheran schools in Australia. The target amount is $26 per child and the total is mounting.

Maybe you would also like to know what we do in Temora and Trungley Hall Church when we have a baptism.

One of the men in the congregation hand-turns a wooden candle holder, while working at the local Men’s Shed. These are varnished and engraved by one of our ladies with the words “The Light of Christ”. The child’s name and date of baptism is added. Another member of our fellowship makes a small banner, appliqued with a suitable design, for the child. On the back of the banner, there’s a message from the congregation – a lasting memory as they begin their walk with our loving Lord.
