God gifts his church with everything it needs to serve him, with each member playing their part in different ways.
This was evident when the parish of Temora recently responded to a call-out to provide masks to go into COVID Care Packs to assist vulnerable communities in Western NSW. The initiative was begun by Cyrena Harris in Dubbo, supported by Anglicare NSW South, NSW West and ACT, and reported on in the September edition of Anglican News.
Temora locals Tracy and Di Harper were excited to see a way to use their sewing skills to put love into action for a community known and loved by God. They gathered 11 ladies of all ages to pin, cut, press and sew 118 masks over about seven hours. It was a joy to work alongside each other, with each person – sewers and non-sewers – playing their part for such a good cause.
