The main church building and administration housing cost millions of dollars to build[2] and are located in Yongsan District.[3] Onnuri is one of approximately 25 megachurches in Korea, and is an emerging church, engaging in postmodern modes of evangelismorganizational structure, and leadership.[4] The church was founded in 1986.[5] Onnuri took on much of Handong Global University‘s debt in the mid-1990s when the university was experiencing financial distress.[6] Onnuri is one of Korea’s largest Presbyterian churches.[7] Onnuri occupies five different church buildings spread out over Seoul, encompassing congregations speaking ten different languages.[8] Onnuri English Ministry, spread out over three different church buildings, is the largest English-language Presbyterian ministry in Korea, employing seven part-time pastors and four full-time pastors.[9] The church’s first evangelism conference was held in 2003.[5] By 2006, 46,000 adults were registered church members, 41,500 of which were in regular attendance of Sunday church services.[10]

Water Park 4 July 2018

I wanted to provide some information about this interesting but not quite the water park is ought to be. I found the photo below care of Google earth, in a Real Estate Ad. 25 Grevillea Crescent Lidcombe. Between us, Jessica and I surmise it is a re-oxegeniser for the water in the adjacent Golf Course – Carnarvon.

Jessica has managed to find her Father’s marker in here, he held a Victoria Cross and so there are plaques for him everywhere though he was cremated at Pine Grove.

While I was lost the other day I found the War Cremation Memorials, in section F but I believe it was the wrong F, so I didn’t find the marker.

Sacred Heart of Jesus The devotion to the Sacred Heart (also known as the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Sacratissimum Cor Iesu in Latin) is one of the most widely practiced and well-known Roman Catholic devotions, taking Jesus Christ′s physical heart as the representation of his divine love for humanity. This devotion is predominantly used in the Roman Catholic Church and in a modified way among some high-church Anglicans, Lutherans and Eastern Catholics. The devotion is especially concerned with what the Church deems to be the longsuffering love and compassion of the heart of Christ towards humanity. The popularization of this devotion in its modern form is derived from a Roman Catholic nun from France, Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, who said she learned the devotion from Jesus during a series of apparitions to her between 1673 and 1675,[1] and later, in the 19th century, from the mystical revelations of another Roman Catholic nun in Portugal, Blessed Mary of the Divine Heart, a religious of the Good Shepherd, who requested in the name of Christ that Pope Leo XIII consecrate the entire world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Predecessors to the modern devotion arose unmistakably in the Middle Ages in various facets of Catholic mysticism, particularly with Saint Gertrude the Great.[2 Bainvel 1910, II. Historical Ideas on the Development of the Devotion, para (3-4).]

Brick Works near Homebush Bay 30 June 2018

Out and about exploring, being so close to Olympic Park, only one stop away from Lidcombe station and never having been there we set off to explore. Reaching  Australia avenue we chose to go to our left and walked towards Wentworth Common . On our way we came across the Old Brick works which has now become a Ring Walk and habitat for endangered Frog specie. Example- the Bell frog.

OLYMPIC PARK 30 6 2018

In a time when building a house meant plenty of brick, mortar and asbestos as opposed to 100% pure cladding, a housing boom meant it was time to get digging. The State Brickworks at Homebush was established by the NSW Government in 1911 to (publicly) provide for the demand for public housing and (privately) to shatter the stranglehold private owners had on the brickmaking industry, because no one makes money without the NSW Government getting a piece of the action. This greedy plan backfired at the onset of the Great Depression, when demand plummeted and the site started operating at a major loss. Ironically, it was sold to a private firm in 1936, and closed soon after. https://pastlivesofthenearfuture.com/2012/06/14/nsw-state-brickworksbrickpit-ring-walk-homebush-nsw/

We took many more photos that day which I shall load to my Facebook.

All together we spent most of our day there, just wandering around until we found a way to cross the road to the other side.

 

 

 

Rookwood Cemetery 29 June – Andrew

Jessica and I were getting on each others nerves, some silly forgotten argument after which in her words, I went off in a “huff”.

I huffed off for an explore of the Cemetery to see  if there were any really interesting graves of people seemingly interesting. I found a Churches of the East or perhaps a Copt buried among the Catholics with a Bible in Arabic on his tomb.

I found the little garden, or one of them for  deceased children and the ‘still born. ‘ There were not so many interesting old graves, mainly because they were ill-kempt, possible without anyone to remember them. Others were collapsing into the tombs or coffins.

There were crows cawing over the graves because they can smell the dead which  gave me the shudders.

I had an interesting time, finding myself lost when I photographed the Catholic Crematorium twice and passed the Muslim section twice. I think I roamed about for two  hours, nary a person around. I found a youth who gave me directions but I was pulled off the trail into beautiful little gardens.

I tarried a while in the Muslim Section 7 noticing all the flowers and thinking that that might be an Innovation. Their graves are under grassy banks and do not protrude above the earth nor are there Mausoleums. There is what I shall call a Mosqette within the area where I presume rites for the dead are said. They were feet away from the Society of Friends.

The most numerous graves belong to Anglicans, next Roman Catholics, then the Independent Trust. The Jewish Section is very small, the Uniting Church, in its former elements of medium density with a Wesleyan off in a corner. There is a  Greek Orthodox chapel which I was quite  taken with and took a couple of photos.

Any way here are a few.

These are the photos Jessica took at Parramatta Park on our walk through it to Westmead Station.

I may have duplicated some since when I select too many with mouse they tend to make clones of themselves. I hope also to have chosen the best of hers.
