PEW SHEET 5th June 2016

Silent Prayer - You are invited to arrive at church early and join others for a time of silent prayer. At Holy Trinity this will occur from 10.00am near the prayer candle. At St John’s this will occur during the 9.00am service.
Prayer Requests - There is a box with paper and a pen in the foyer at both Holy Trinity and St John’s for you to leave any prayer requests.
Commit to a time of Prayer - You might like to sign up to a time of daily prayer by promising to pray at home or with others at an agreed time. A sheet is available for you to register your commitment. Reverend Jo will be saying Morning Prayer at Holy Trinity from 9.00am most mornings.
Prayer Walk Rev. Jo will lead a prayer walk around Yarram on Thursday 16th June commencing at 11.00am leaving from Holy Trinity Yarram. This walk will be repeated on Sunday 19th June leaving from Holy Trinity at 2.00pm. The walk should last about 1 hour and include prayer for the environment, the church and the people who serve our town. Weather permitting; wear comfortable walking shoes

Today we respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet today, the Bratwoloong people of the Gunaikurnai nation and pay our respects to Elders past and present.
In Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, the meaning of Country is more than just ownership or connection to land, as Professor Mick Dodson explains:
“When we talk about traditional ‘Country’…we mean something beyond the dictionary definition of the word. For Aboriginal Australians…we might mean homeland, or tribal or clan area and we might mean more than just a place on the map. For us, Country is a word for all the values, places, resources, stories and cultural obligations associated with that area and its features. It describes the entirety of our ancestral domains. While they may all no longer necessarily be the title-holders to land, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians are still connected to the Country of their ancestors and most consider themselves the custodians or caretakers of their land.” Reconciliation Week
