To Footscray

from w
Yesterday our Port Phillip West Presbytery had a function at Footscray Uniting Church as a celebration of being a church of many cultures. So there was singing by groups of migrants who had come to Australia from South Sudan, Indonesia, Philippines, Tonga, Korea and other places. The Sudanese sang accompanied by two loud drums and the Korean singers were great, with a keyboard and guitar. We met old friends and made new friends. We were surprised to meet a couple who we'd known thirty years ago! Bernie and Marion Dunn. Bernie was once the resident policeman of Hopetoun who played a very cool trumpet those days! It was a very interesting church service and was followed by a delicious feast with food from many cultures. Peceli and I represented the Fiji community but our Fiji folk didn't bring along a choir. Maybe next time.
