signs of hope (post-earthquakes Christchurch)

Oct 28, 2011

The news of the morning for Christchurch was that the Cashel Mall will open tomorrow afternoon. This is a great sign of hope for our city. Once again there are signs of business and activity in the previously active central business district of our city.

Today also we heard of the work of Gerard Smyth whose documentary film about the earthquakes and the peoples response and recovery will reach the cinemas nationwide in November. The premier of the movie will also open the Palms Mall movie complex. Another sign of hope.

You can watch the trailer for the movie on youtube – link below.

Every day I am with people who may have once been baptised but now feel a distance between themselves and the Church and God. We are these people, as are too many of our family, friends, neighbours and workmates. This book therefore is for us.
