Monday Missive – March 4th, 2013

Hi Fighter, It’s Father Dave back with you again, and I’m a little soggy and deflated this week! I was planning on showcasing a series of wonderful pics for you this week – pics from our church weekend in the bush: go-karting swimming caving toasting marshmellows Unfortunately the whole event got washed out! As Fighting …

Monday Missive – February 25th, 2013

G’day Fighter. It’s Father Dave back with you again, and I’m feeling a bit sick and a bit annoyed this week. The fact that I’m a bit sick is a good sign actually because I’ve been a LOT sick over the last day or two, and have spent most of that time in bed! I …

Monday Missive – February 18th, 2013

Hi Fighter, I’m going to try to be brief tonight. It’s gone midnight and I have an early start. It’s my birthday – that’s my excuse – and I’ve enjoyed a night out at the movies. We saw ‘Lincoln’ (no, not the one where he’s a vampire-slayer, the other one). It was a powerful movie …

Monday Missive – February 11th, 2013

Hi Fighter, Yes, it’s Father Dave, and I’m still here! I’m still here in Sydney that is! I was supposed to be in Damascus today and I had anticipated filling today’s missive with pics of Damascus and Beirut. It was not to be! In case you missed my announcement on Friday, our Peace Mission to …

Peace Mission to Syria postponed! :-(

Thank you to everyone for your prayers and support for our Peace Mission to Syria BUT we received word this morning that the mission has been postponed! Denning and I were scheduled to leave tomorrow afternoon. This is a real shock! The email sent to me and the other 15 delegates this morning reads: For …

Hi Fighter, It’s Father Dave back with you again – coming to the end of an action-packed day (that culminated in a painfully long run) and savoring an action-packed week that included the long-awaited second stoush between Daniel Geale and Anthony Mundine. Geale v. Mundine If you were with me last week you’ll remember that …

Monday Missive – January 28th, 2013

Hi Fighter, It’s Father Dave, back with you again on a wet and balmy January evening in Sydney. As is the pattern in Australia, the weather shifts between passionate extremes – going from hot and dusty to a flood situation in a matter of hours! Every January is like this – floods in the north …

Monday Missive – January 21st, 2013

Hi Fighter, It’s Father Dave back with you again, and I confess that I’m kicking back a bit tonight. I’m taking it easy, as I feel rather tired. I’m not sure why I feel tired but I’ve abandoned my weekly half-marathon run tonight and am enjoying a glass of wine instead. I feel a bit …

Monday Missive – January 14th, 2013

Hi Fighter! It’s Father Dave and it’s good to be back with you for another week. Before I say anything else today let me thank you for your prayers for Bernie! There was a torrent of prayerful response to last week’s missive where I mentioned my time with a dear man named Bernie. Without wanting …

Monday Missive – January 7th, 2013

Hi Fighter, It’s Father Dave back with you, and wishing you a ‘Happy Epiphany!’ I appreciate that Epiphany (which is the day when we remember the wise men who came to worship the baby Jesus) isn’t celebrated by many people, and certainly not as vibrantly as Christmas or New Year. Even so, so far as …
