Sermon: All Manna of Grumbling Exodus 16

Download sermon: here

Preached by Richard Humphrey on Sunday, September 30th, 2018

A part of the series.

Some parts of Exodus 16 are easier to swallow than others.  But will we take to heart its message about the danger of grumbling and take the antidote of thankfulness.

Generous and saving God: grant us grace to be continually thankful for all you have done for us, and in that thankfulness to be eager to serve and live for others, so that we and all your children may rejoice in your salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Service: Aboriginal Deaths in Custody – Prayer Vigil

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

This Wednesday, we gather to pray in our capital cities for Aboriginal deaths in custody.

The 26th of September will be the anniversary of Wayne Fella Morrison’s death in custody. Wayne Fella is the brother of a dear friend of Brooke, and his story is one of the unfathomable 147 Aboriginal deaths in custody from just the last 10 years.

Aboriginal deaths in custody have been researched, and reported, since 1980. In 1991 Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody handed down its report. This Royal Commission investigated 99 Aboriginal deaths in custody from 1980 to 1991. Since 1991 there had been an additional 407 Aboriginal deaths in custody. In the last week we added another three to this total, taking it to now 510 Aboriginal lives lost in custody.
