Finke River Mission
Let me tell you a story. It’s a wonderful story, a true Epiphany story.
On 5 April, Pantjiti Unkari McKenzie from Docker River was presented with the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) by the Administrator of the Northern Territory, Her Honour the Honourable Vicki O’Halloran AM.
On Sunday 17 September 2017, Marlene Abbott was installed as a parish worker at Docker River Lutheran Church to help resident pastor Roy Yaltjanki with regular Sunday services.
Professional Standards officers have delivered the first ever LCA Standards of Ethical Behaviour presentation specifically for Aboriginal pastors and church workers – all the way out at Docker River.
At Hermannsburg the song ‘Kumbayah’ was sung in fifteen different languages at the same time. Eleven of those languages came from the hearts of the multi-Grammy award winning Soweto Gospel Choir.
Each year, people from all over Australia give their time, money and labour to help local congregations to maintain the structures they feel they need to help proclaim the gospel in their local area.
