The elephant in the room Education: on what foundation (off-site link)

We thought that New Zealanders especially would be interested in the following powerful article by creationist supporter Renton Maclachlan. It’s actually based on a transcript of a speech by Renton on the malaise surrounding the education system in NZ, and the root causes. It’s an enlightening read, particularly with the election this weekend. You will be hard pressed to find a political candidate who ‘tells it like it is’ the way this transcript does.


Complaint Filed against Australian Christian Resort for Refusing Homosexual Youth Group

By Tim Waggoner

VICTORIA, AU, September 8, 2008 ( - Homosexuals in Australia are using a Christian camp's refusal to host a pro-homosexual group as a test case to attempt to overturn legal exemptions that exist for religious groups in the Equal Opportunity Act. The Act, similar to other Western "anti-discrimination" measures, exists to "eliminate sexual and racial harassment in the workplace, educational institutions and accommodation."

Owners of the Christian Phillip Island Adventure Resort located in Victoria, Australia, are facing legal action for their decision to deny use of their facilities to the homosexual youth group, Way Out. more...

Obama, the “open” god Christian

While other conservative leaders asked Obama about controversial social issues, the Rev. Franklin Graham - son of evangelist Billy Graham - asked an openly theological question: Did the candidate believe that "Jesus was the way to God, or merely a way."
Later, Obama told Newsweek that - in a candid, personal answer - he replied: "It is a precept of my Christian faith that my redemption comes through Christ, but I am also a big believer in the Golden Rule, which I think is an essential pillar not only of my faith but of my values and my ideals and my experience here on Earth. I've said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know ... I do not believe she went to hell."

A saline abortion survivor visits Canberra

The devastating human cost of late-term abortion will be brought into stark reality when a survivor of a saline abortion visits Canberra in the lead up to a vote to disallow the Medicare funding of second trimester and late-term abortions.
Gianna Jessen (pictured) was burned alive in the womb by saline solution for approximately 18 hours before being delivered alive in a Los Angeles County abortion clinic. She has had to overcome many problems caused by the abortion and is a strong advocate for the value of life, as well as the harm caused by abortion.
ACL and other pro-life groups have sponsored Gianna’s visit to Australia from next Monday (September 1) so that she can brief Senators before their September 17 vote on Senator Guy Barnett’s disallowance motion to stop the Medicare funding of second trimester and late-term abortions (14-26 weeks). more...

Elder of Kerang and family move to Melbourne

Elder David Douglas, his wife Fenella and their children William and Neve have just moved to Melbourne.
David became an elder in 2006 and also served a term as treasurer of the Board of Management.  His services to the congregation will be sorely missed.
Fenella was also involved in the activities of the church and helped with the preparation and publishing of the directory, the birthday lists and the name badges.
We pray God’s richest blessing on them as they commence a new leg on their earthly journey.  May they find a good spiritual home.  We remember them in our prayers, also for William who will now go to a new school, and Neve who will meet new friends.
