Decided to make a pair of oil candles today, for our Church, got to admit they took a fair bit of machining, used a high density plastic called Delrin for the tank/body, and some aircraft grade Alloy for the wick holder.
Tried a while back but trying to get good quality candle oil is so hard, but finally found a retailer in Brisbane.
It’s a real science as to how tight you need to make the wick in the wick holder, plus wick height makes a difference.
Finally got it all together, now I understand why oil candles cost so much!

Death of NSW Bishop James Haak

 It is with deep sadness that we share the news that Pastor James Haak, Bishop of the New South Wales District, died this morning in Adelaide.port bulletin3

He had been in Adelaide this week attending meetings of the College of Bishops and the first meeting of the new General Church Board, to which he had been elected by General Synod earlier this month. He was due to fly home to Sydney this morning.

Late last night he experienced chest pains and was taken to hospital by an ambulance. He died from a heart-related condition at about 7.00 am, while his wife Marie was still in transit to Adelaide.

Pastor Haak had been Bishop of the New South Wales District for nine months. Prior to moving to Sydney to take up that role, he had been 1st Assistant Bishop of the Queensland District and pastor of the Lockyer Valley Parish (Gatton Ministry Area). He had previously served at Rockhampton, West Logan and Pittsworth in Queensland and Eudunda in South Australia.

The LCA/NZ mourns with Marie, their children Aidan and Annie, their extended family, and all who served with Bishop Haak in the ministry of the gospel. We pray that God will carry them in his loving arms during this time of shock and grief.

Details of Bishop Haak’s funeral will be advised when known.

Men’s Breakfast
11/8/2018

***   The guest speaker was Jason Stevens, many N.R.L. supporters would have heard about him as he made it into the state side in that sport. Retired from playing and focusing on the film industry, he was introduced by the manager of Majestic port bulletin4Cinemas at the Men’s Breakfast last Saturday as the film,” Chasing Comets” was being shown for the last week. His testimony began with his childhood and the hardship of a violent father who eventually left his wife to care for the two boys and a daughter that had been seriously injured when hit by a car, not being able to talk and walk. As time went by, the Holy Spirit began to take over and the hate started to fade towards their father and Jason realized that many Christians go with the flow meaning he also attended his Church once a week or so. Delving into the Scriptures, he realized that our God wants more than that. He then decided to hand his life over to God, to be imitaters of God. The punch line for his testamony to a hundred or so listeners on a chilly 7am Breakfast  was ” I made the decision, God made the change. Let us pray that the Holy Spirit will help us do this.”  On his death bed, both boys were able to be with their Dad to say “We forgive you”. ***
