Dear members and friends of St Peter’s, Hobart.
We as a congregation extend our deepest sympathies to Bev and her children Janina, Annette, Milda, Michael and their families following the death of Tony late Sunday afternoon, 21st of February. Tony was a faithful member of St Peter’s who had an obvious love for his Lord. As we sympathise with Bev and the family we also rejoice in the triumphs of Christ through whom we also will rise triumphant and forgiven. As St John writes in the book of Revelation ‘Blessed are those who die in the Lord; they shall rest from their labours’. Blessed indeed, as the Church militant gives way to the Church triumphant, and our sufferings in this fallen world are transformed into eternal celebration and perfect joy!
Tony’s funeral will be held midday (12 noon) this Saturday, 27th of February at Graham Family Funerals, 73 Risdon Road, New Town. It will also be streamed. A link will be forwarded closer to the funeral.
Please also be advised that a Lenten interactive study will be held tomorrow evening, Wednesday 24th of February, 7.00pm at the St Peters Centre. It will be streamed as well and can be accessed here. We will be looking at chapter 12 of the book of Revelation. We encourage all to attend even if you have not been a part of these studies or, if not possible, to tune in and understand the richness of this book and how it should be properly interpreted (in contrast to so many uninformed and speculative approaches).
I leave you all in God’s good hands, the safest place to be, though our Lord’s are nail-pierced. This only further proves the point!
Warmest regards and blessings,
Saint Peter's Lutheran Church, Hobart.
