GKI Perth Choir Visited Nursing Homes

GKI Perth Choir Visited Nursing Homes

The Serafim Choir Singing at Amana Living, Sundowner Centre

The GKI Perth choir, Serafim, conducted another visits to nursing homes last Saturday, the 12th of May 2012.

The choir visited two of Amana Living nursing homes, Dorothy Genders in Mosman Park and Sundowner Centre in Stirling, which both of them were also visited last year.

This event is part of the church’s annual program which has been held since 2006, with approximately two visits every year, including a Christmas caroling in early December to several nursing homes in Perth.

Mr Ari Supomo, Coordinator of the church’s social activity for the Committee of The Elders, said the main purpose of this service is to share and to experience God’s love with the nursing home residents.

He also added that this visit is not only intended for carrying out the program of the Liturgy Commission, but is also aimed to strengthen the fellowship between the choir members.

The past two nursing home visitations in 2011 were a Christmas caroling and another visit during the Easter season.

Every visit consists of a singing performance and a time for fellowship with the residents.

The Amana Living Residents

 

The Amana Living Senior Chaplain, Rev. David Atkinson said the residents in both of the nursing homes really enjoyed the choir’s visit.

“I think it’s really wonderful, it’s really appreciated by the residents. They enjoy singing very much. And I find that your church choir brings a great deal of life and vitality, and the sense of the presence of God”.

The residents are looking forward to welcoming the choir’s next visits.

A True Story.

This is a true story..

About a mother, whose son hates her.

 

My mom only had one eye. I hated her… she was such an embarrassment.
She cooked for students & teachers to support the family.
There was this one day during elementary school where my mom came to say hello to me.
I was so embarrassed. How could she do this to me?
I ignored her, threw her a hateful look and ran out.
The next day at school one of my classmates said,
“EEEE, your mom only has one eye!”
I wanted to bury myself.
I also wanted my mom to just disappear.
So I confronted her that day and said, ” If you’re only gonna make me a laughing stock, why don’t you just die?!!!”
My mom did not respond…
I didn’t even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because I was full of anger. I was oblivious to her feelings.
I wanted to be out of that house, and have nothing to do with her.
So I studied really hard, got a chance to go to Singapore to study.
Then, I got married. I bought a house of my own. I had kids of my own.
I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts
Then one day, my mother came to visit me.
She hadn’t seen me in years and she didn’t even meet her grandchildren.
When she stood by the door, my children laughed at her, and I yelled at her for coming over uninvited.
I screamed at her, “How dare you come to my house and scare my children!” GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!”
And to this, my mother quietly answered, “Oh, I’m so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address,” and she disappeared out of sight.
One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house in Singapore.
So I lied to my wife that I was going on a business trip.
After the reunion, I went to the old shack just out of curiosity.
My neighbors said that she died.
I did not shed a single tear.
They handed me a letter that she had wanted me to have.

 

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.  ~Tenneva Jordan

Happy Mother’s Day!

Ulasan Buku Kristen

The Purpose Driven Life

The Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren

 

Buku The Purpose Driven Life merupakan buku rohani Kristen yang ditulis oleh Rick Warren, seorang pendeta pendiri gereja Saddleback di California, Amerika Serikat.

Dengan 40 bab singkat, buku ini membantu pembaca, khususnya umat Kristiani, untuk memahami tujuan Allah bagi hidup kita di dunia.

Rick Warren di dalam bukunya mengatakan, dengan mengerti tujuan tersebut, kita dapat melihat hidup dari perspektif yang berbeda, sehingga kita dapat mengambil keputusan-keputusan dalam hidup dengan lebih bijaksana dan sesuai dengan kehendak Allah.

Sejak pertama kali diterbitkan pada tahun 2002, The Purpose Driven Life telah terjual lebih dari 30 juta copy pada tahun 2006, dan telah menempati daftar buku terlaris New York Times, the Wall Street Journal dan Publishers Weekly.

 

One Thousand Gifts

One Thousand Gifts, Ann Voskamp

 

Ann Voskamp, dalam bukunya yang pertama kali diterbitkan pada tahun 2011 ini, mengajak pembacanya untuk belajar mensyukuri berkat Allah setiap saat.

Perjalanan hidup Ann di masa lalu sungguh tidak mudah. Di masa kecilnya, ia harus menyaksikan peristiwa saat saudaranya meninggal akibat tabrakkan.

Kedua keponakkannya meninggal disaat yang bersamaan.

Lewat cerita berdasarkan pengalaman hidupnya, Ann Voskamp ingin membuka mata pembacanya untuk melihat karunia Allah yang besar, kehadiran Allah dalam setiap sisi kehidupan kita.

Seringkali kita mempertanyakan kehadiran Tuhan dikala kesusahan, kesedihan dan keterpurukkan kita. One Thousand Gifts membantu untuk menjawab pertanyaan-pertanyaan tersebut.

Perayaan Paskah 2012

Untuk memperingati kebangkitan Kristus, serangkaian perayaan Paskah dilangsungkan GKI Perth minggu lalu.

Dimulai pada hari Kamis Putih, ibadah Taize ini diiringi lagu-lagu yang diulang belasan kali, nyala lilin yang menerangi ruangan, dengan memusatkan perhatian ibadah pada salib dan alkitab yang terbuka di tengah-tengah ruangan.

Bertempat di hall belakang gereja, ibadah gaya taize ini dirancang dengan tujuan untuk menolong jemaat merefleksikan peristiwa-peristiwa besar yang terjadi pada malam sebelum Yesus ditangkap di taman Getsemani.

Sementara itu, kebaktian Jumat Agung juga dilangsungkan keesokkan harinya untuk memperingati peristiwa penyaliban Kristus.

Lain dari biasanya, kebaktian kali ini juga menampilkan drama singkat percakapan Pontius Pilatus dengan istrinya tentang pembebasan Barabas dan penyerahan Yesus untuk disalibkan, untuk menjadi perenungan jemaat.

Pada hari Minggu Paskah, selain kebaktian Paskah di gereja, Uniting Church in Australia juga mengundang jemaat GKI dan gereja lainnya untuk mengikuti Easter Sunrise Service.

Seperti namanya, Easter Sunrise Service ke-55 yang dilangsungkan di Roe Garden, Kings Park tersebut dimulai pada saat matahari mulai terbit.

Paduan Suara Serafim melayani dalam Easter Sunrise Service

Dalam kotbahnya, Rev Don Dowling sempat menjelaskan bahwa terbitnya matahari menandakan hari yang baru, seperti kebangkitan Kristus yang membawa harapan baru bagi kita.

Selain The Salvation Army Orchestra yang mengiringi lagu-lagu ibadah, paduan suara GKI Perth juga turut berpartisipasi dengan menyanyikan lagu All of These dan Amen.

Perayaan Paskah yang dilangsungkan setelah itu, juga menghadirkan drama dan pembagian telur oleh anak-anak sekolah minggu kepada jemaat.

Dengan mengangkat tema, Tuhan Yang Bangkit, panitia Paskah berharap agar kiranya kuasa kebangkitan Tuhan membangkitkan semangat pelayanan kita bersama.
