Gospel Yarning Evangelism Conference

15-19 May in Sydney

Gospel Yarning is a cross-cultural gathering on evangelism in the Uniting Church. A great strength of the Uniting Church is our cultural diversity, so we will hear and build up one another in new wisdom for faith-sharing in many different ways. In the recent past, our evangelism has not been strong. We seek to establish the Uniting Church as a servant of the Gospel for our next forty years.
Please pray
In the lead up to The Gospel Yarning Conference from 15-19 May, the Moderator Rev. Myung Hwa Park is encouraging the whole Synod to pray for this event. If you would like to join with the Moderator to pray, from next week Synod will be sending information about where you can meet and pray with the Moderator. Each week Synod will send out a prayer in a different language. For updates go to facebook page www.facebook.com/gospelyarning/

Dan Etherington of Kippax Uniting has built a business assisting coconut producers to develop their ‘cottage’ business in their home places. Dan’s company, Kokonut Pacific, manufactures hand-operated coconut oil machinery that uses a traditional extraction technique and sells it to rural communities in developing countries. Dan and his team of four employees have also had to take an unusually far-reaching approach to marketing. While some villages produce oil for local use, others need to sell it further afield. Kokonut Pacific has helped them with product development and sales of certified organic virgin coconut oil, coconut oil soap and coconut oil biodiesel fuel.

The shop will be open; cash only, please.
