Introduction to St Pauls

"Here comes this dreamer. Come now, let us kill him”

Our icon for contemplation in the texts of the Old Testament moves from Jacob to Joseph, and so the story of life is revealed in a new telling.
Without visiting the historical backdrop, we can hear this retelling as another invitation to look at ourselves and the life process that we ourselves are engaged in, and all are engaged in the process.

The device of the ‘dream’ again plays a part in the storytelling and opens us to look beyond our sensate world and through the veil into the dreamscape of eternity. The character of Joseph moves from ‘favoured’ through the pit of death and into the rule of kingship; it is very much an early telling of life’s Easter process; a story made real in the enlightenment of Christ.
In our contemplation, we might continue to seek and realise this same process in our lives; awakening from the dream of mortal reality and seeing ourselves as alive in one divine eternal reality.

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one.
Perhaps someday you’ll join us
And the world will then be

Coexist

Blessing for Unity

May God, the one from whom on different paths
All of us have come,
To whom on different paths
All of us are going,
Make strong in our hearts what unites us.
May God build bridges across all that divides us;
May God make us, united, rejoice in our diversity.
Br. David Steindl-Rast, OSB

"Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid."

This week's Newletter

Do you know we use our Community Hall, kitchen and other facilities for our celebrations and weekly and monthlyactivities, and that many other groups in our community use it as well?

Our commitment to community is given a ‘real’ expression in practical terms through continuing to maintain a precinct that welcomes all, especially those service groups that could not otherwise operate.

Community Precinct and the Hall

On behalf of the St Paul’s Council and community, we wish to express our sincere appreciation for the financial contribution from Lotterywest for the conservation work to our heritage listed community hall. Without this financial support from Lotterywest, we would not have had the capacity to undertake the required conservation work to ensure our facility remains a meeting place for so many different community groups.

St Paul’s is committed to growing community & sharing our facilities with the wider community and greatly appreciates the partnership with Lotterywest to assist us to continue to serve the community
