We now have a presence on on Facebook called ‘Hills Anglicans’. If you use Facebook, type ‘Hills Anglicans’ in the search bar, find the page, then click ‘like’. you can also invite your friends to like the page as well. It’s another way of keeping in touch with parish news and activities, and for us to share information about what we’re up to. PLANNED GIvING: Over the next four weeks, the Mustard Seed will include information about the current state of planned giving in our Worshipping Community. How many people are participating in Planned Giving in the current financial year? 24 households returned ‘anonymous advice to the treasurer’ forms. What is the total amount that has been ‘pledged’ for planned giving in the current financial year? $50,240 has been pledged. What is the median annual giving figure? The median annual giving per household is $1300. (This means that half of households give more than $1300 per year, and half give less.) CONNECTEDNESS PASTORAL CARE POLICy AND SySTEM: The system of pastoral care in the parish is currently under review, particularly in the light of Rosie stepping back from her very dedicated leadership role in this area. Over the next three Sundays, the preaching will have an emphasis on Pastoral Care. With the Mustard Seed email of 21 August, a draft policy document will be distributed and you will be invited to give feedback about the policy.

LITURGY

INCLUDING THE WHOLE PEOPLE Of GOD IN THE 10.00AM EUCHARIST Over the last several months, there has been a review and discussion of our approach to faith formation for children and their involvement in liturgy. Until the end of the year, the following will take place: • The ‘input’ for children will take place during the Ministry of the Word inside the church building. A number of adult leaders are involved in ‘storytelling’. • Children will then go into the Meeting Room to respond to the story. This will take a variety of forms. They will also have prayer together. • During the offertory hymn, children will return to the church building and participate in the Great Thanksgiving and Holy Communion. There are a number of other initiatives to be unrolled over time. The particular focus will be on providing children with a framework of pastoral care and faith formation as part of the Whole People of God. REfUGEE AND MIGRANT SUNDAy, 28 AUGUST: An initiative of the National Council of Churches in Australia, Refugee and Migrant Sunday is is a celebration of the dignity of people who are refugees and migrants and the contribution they have made to life in Australia. The liturgies on this day will reflect the theme.

FORMATION MeDiTATiOn is now happening at 5.15pm each Thursday in St Cuthbert’s . It usually runs for about forty minutes. Why not clear a space in your week for silence and stillness? MEDITATION AS LIBERATION: Saturday, 20 August 2011 from 10am to 3:30pm – a Community Day led by The Rev Stuart Fenner at St Mary’s Church, yule Avenue, Middle Swan. Donation $10. ByO lunch.

Throughout August, Shirley will be co-ordinating donations for the annual ANGLICARE WINTER BLANKET APPEAL.

Humanity was, and is, the real cross that Jesus had to carry. This is meant to be representative of the kaleidoscopic wonder issuing from the rich diversity of cultures found in the world. All people fall under the umbrella of God’s love. The centre piece is dinkum, red, Aussie desert sand and it holds the empty tomb. Above, The Ascension Christ rises flanked by James and John in deference to their mother’s request. Peter’s inverted crucifixion appears at the foot of the cross flanked by Paul, the founder of the church, on the right in stained glass and the female figure rising from darkness to light on the left could be Mary Magdalene. There are other specific, identifiable representations - Aboriginality, colonialism, the Episcopate, hanging by a thread and more. Not all the figures have identity. There is space for personal understanding and contribution. Where are you?
