  • Volume 63 "Mother" Chisholm of the Kantara Canteen: Dame Alice Isabel
           Chisholm
    • Abstract: Langfield, Judith
      Just over one hundred years ago in July 1915 shortly after the disastrous Gallipoli campaign, a fifty nine-years old country woman, fearing greatly for her son, took herself and her younger daughter Dorothy off to Egypt to be near him and offer her services to the Red Cross. Alice Chisholm's son Trooper Bertram of the 6th Light Horse Regiment was studying architecture in England and returned to Australia in 1914. A year later he was seriously wounded at Gallipoli and transferred to the First Australian General Hospital at Heliopolis near Cairo. By the middle of that year, the hospitals were overcrowded with beds spilling out onto the entrance portico and pathways. There was a desperate lack of facilities and the nursing staff were extremely overworked.

  • Volume 63 Saint James' Church; Tumblong. NSW
    • Abstract: Read, Peter
      The ecclesiastical history in Australia begins with the settlers of the First Fleet and the clergy accompanying them. The chaplains were under the discipline, authority and care of the Archbishop of Canterbury. As the colony continued to grow, Australia was in 1824 organised into an Archdeaconry of the Diocese of Calcutta. Ten years later it became "The Church of England in Australia" and on 24 August 1981 a name change to "The Anglican Church of Australia" confirmed Australia's place in the world-wide Anglican family.

  • Volume 63 1991 Gulf war chaplain's reflections
    • Abstract: Hill, Archdeacon David
      This year marks the 25th anniversary of the end of the 1991 Gulf War. The 1991 Gulf War was an international response to Saddam Hussein's Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. Australia's response was to send three Australian war ships, HMAS Sydney, HMAS Brisbane and HMAS Westralia and a group of Australian Navy divers, to help with the clearing of mines from Kuwait. There was a small group of Defence Logistic personnel ashore. I was sent as the RAN Chaplain to the three war ships and the Australian personnel ashore.

  • Volume 62 Louis Reginald Williams 1902 - 1980: Ecclesiastical architect:
           "The grand old man of church architecture in Australia"
    • Abstract: Langfield, Judith
      Louis Reginald Williams is a name connected closely to ecclesiastical architects and after a career lasting 65 years and designing many churches and buildings he is well remembered as an architect with a profound knowledge and great love of church buildings. Much of this information has been taken from a thesis written by Gladys Moore, who was his secretary for four years just before the Second World War.

  • Volume 62 Praising god through music
    • Abstract: Campbell, John
      Psalm 150 is the last psalm of the Hebrew Psalter and is a litany of pure praise. It details all the wind, stringed and percussion instruments that may be used to build up, with song and dance, a crescendo of praise. It is like a doxology to the whole Psalter, embracing, finally, the whole world. "Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!" (Especially in the Stanford chant setting!)

  • Volume 61 St Matthias' Currawang 140th anniversary service
    • Abstract: Frame, Tom
      One of the things we observe from history is that human 'nature' changes very little. Our appreciation and assessment of human 'conduct' might evolve and develop, but that does not dramatically change human 'nature' by which I mean how we act towards others or what we make of our lives. There are, of course, in every generation those who suppose that the world was a better place when they were growing up. The previous 20, 30, 40 years were always to be preferred to now. Like a favourite photograph that depicts us as we would most prefer to be remembered, so every human being can probably bring to mind halcyon days in which optimism overshadowed pessimism when what 'might' be clearly overshadows whatever has been.

  • Volume 61 Forward in faith: Centenary to sesquicentenary in the diocese of

    • Abstract: Wright, Canon Bill
      2013-2014 have been two years in which we have enjoyed celebrating the sesqui-centenary of the Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn. Fifty years ago in 1963-1964 there were celebrations for the diocesan centenary with the theme "Forward in Faith". In seeking to understand a little of what has happened since then it is helpful to consider aspects of life 50 years ago.

  • Volume 61 St Paul's Burra
    • Abstract: Walton, Ruth
      St Paul's church was built in 1868 on land that was part of a 200 acre grant made by Mr Charles Campbell in 1853. Most of the land was sold in 1928 and St Paul's is now located on narrow strip of land which, at the time of the original grant, was going to be used as a graveyard.

  • Volume 61 "What's the use of Church history?: Tell me some reasons."
    • Abstract: Stone, Kevin
      By way of introduction, let me tell you what happened to me last week. As I was shopping at Woolworths, an infrequent activity on my part, an older gentleman, older than myself, started conversing with me. He said, as he placed his purchases on the cashier's belt: "Did you hear the story about the lady in the confessional? She was sobbing away and the priest asked her, 'What's the matter?' 'It's my husband you know, he's just died.' So the priest trying to empathise asked, 'Did he leave you with some final words?' 'Yes, he just yelled out, 'Put the gun down, put the gun down.'"

  • Volume 61 A brief history of the use of flowers in Christian worship
    • Abstract: Bowler, Laurayne
      Paintings and sculptures provide evidence that the Egyptians used vases of flowers to decorate their homes and public places as long ago as 2686 BC with lotus and the papyrus being the plants most commonly used. During the Ptolemic era (305-30 BC) Greek and Roman writings reveal a more varied native plant life, including some foreign plants, most notably the rose. The earliest depiction of mixed cut flowers, artfully arranged in a container, is a mosaic of a basket of flowers from the Emperor Hadrian's villa at Tivoli near Rome which dates from early in the 2nd Century. In the mosaics of Ravenna, the Byzantines depicted contrived formal, tall, symmetrical arrangements of mainly foliage with regularly placed clusters of flowers. During the Renaissance, floral decorations became more studied and elaborate and were popular for decorating houses and churches. They were also depicted in terracotta wreaths and decorative ceramic plaques as well as paintings (e.g. by Andrea Mantegna and Carlo Crivelli). The painting "Virgin and Child and St John" by Sandro Botticelli, depicts a pyramidal arrangement in a pedestal vase.

In 1964 the moon had not been stepped on by human feet, we were buying and selling goods in pounds, shillings and pence, measuring distance in miles, or in yards, feet and inches, gauging fluids in gallons and pints, being weighed in stones and pounds and reporting rain in inches. Television was in black and white; "God Save the Queen" was the national anthem, and it was played at the end of movies at the cinema and when radio stations closed at about 11 pm. Town lights were extinguished at midnight. Cars had no seatbelts. Banks and post offices were open on Saturday mornings. Children in isolated areas received correspondence lessons.

  • Volume 61 The bells of St John's
    • Abstract: Hill, Archdeacon David
      According to the Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church, the tradition has it that Pallinus, Bishop of Nola in Campania, was the first to introduce the bell into Christian worship in AD 420. However the tradition rests on slender evidence, but it has given us two Latin words for a bell, 'campana' and 'nola', unless, as is more likely, the story was invented to account for the words. St Gregory of Tours (AD 585) is the first Christian writer who mentions "church bells" frequently.

  • Volume 60 Issue No. - An interview with Helen Patterson (nee Dewhirst)
    • Abstract: Michael, Archdeacon
      Helen Dewhirst was born 1930 and grew up in Goulburn. Her family attended St John's Anglican Church, Bradfordville, a centre of North Goulburn Parish. The Great Depression affected the fortunes of families in Goulburn, but her father, being a public servant, never lost his job. He worked at Kenmore Hospital from 1910 until his death in 1953, apart from war service in Egypt and France in World War I.

  • Volume 60 Issue No. - The reverend Alberto Dias Soares and St Stephen's
           Presbyterian Church, Queanbeyan
    • Abstract: O'Keefe, Brendan
      In 1871, as a favour to the local Presbyterian community in Queanbeyan, the Reverend Alberto Dias Soares, drew up plans and specifications for the church that the Presbyterians wished to build in the town. At the time, Soares was the rector of Christ Church in Queanbeyan and, as will be seen, he evidently saw no conflict of interest in designing a church for another religious denomination. St Stephen's, as the church would be called, was opened in March 1874 and was the only non-Anglican church that Soares designed. Intriguingly, Jan Armour in her 1974 history of St Stephen's stated that Soares "drew the plans in metric configurations." This claim, if true, would almost certainly make St Stephen's the only church designed and built to metric specifications in Australia in the 19th century. A recent find, however, has identified the source of the claim which, at the same time, calls into question its veracity.

  • Volume 59 Issue No. - A brief history of the Merimbula-Imlay district
    • Abstract: Bazley, Shirley
      White history in this region started in 1797 when a group of shipwrecked sailors made their way up the east coast of Australia from Ninety Mile Beach to Wattamolla Bay, where they were rescued and taken to Sydney. That epic journey introduced white men to numerous tribes of Aboriginals and these encounters were sometimes friendly, sometimes not. Sometimes practical help and food was offered, sometimes the survivors were threatened and possibly harmed, as of the 17 men who left the Sydney Cove, which had been wrecked in Bass Strait, only three made it to safety. Doubtless some of the men died as a result of the hardships they endured on the journey but there was evidence that some had met death from more violent causes. (There is an exhibit on show at the Old School Museum at the moment, tracing that journey and the re-enactment staged by the Scouting movement 200 years later).

  • Volume 59 Issue No. - Bishop Christopher George Barlow - a man of rarest
           sympathy
    • Abstract: Wagland, Mark
      The bishops of Goulburn (and Canberra-Goulburn) are a fascinating and varied group of men. Each bishop has made a significant contribution to the Christian story in this region and, in varying degrees, to Anglicanism in Australia. Bishop Barlow, given his relatively long period in office, is curiously one of the less well-known bishops. This study of aspects of his life and ministry will hopefully stimulate interest in a bishop whose humility, sincerity and pastoral skills earned him the love and admiration of his priests and his people.

  • Volume 58 Issue No. - The Epitaphs
    • Abstract: Hill, David
      An epitaph, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica, is a short text honouring a deceased person, strictly speaking that is inscribed on their tombstone or plaque, but also used figuratively. Some are specified by the dead person beforehand, others chosen by those responsible for the burial. An epitaph may be in poem or verse; poets have been known to compose their own epitaphs prior to their death, as William Shakespeare did.

      The October issue of the Journal was of much interest, especially the story of Mrs Mary Hill. However, I am writing with regard to Professor Frame's article to which there probably were varied responses at the Diocesan Clergy School. I note that The Established Church, edited by Mark Chapman, Judith Maltby, and William Whyte does mount a defence of establishment.

  • Volume 57 Tracing the emergence of a canon of Holy Scripture in churches
    • Abstract: Frost, Anthony
      Christianity was and remains a religion of "a book." The holy texts contained within the Christian canon, however, have been influenced by both internal and external factors throughout its formation. External forces, such as heresy, persecution and ecclesiastical politics, served to strengthen the internal momentum of those texts used by early churches to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. Over the last forty years there has been a growing interest in the origins, development, and continuing viability of the biblical canon as a fixed collection of sacred writings. Among the difficulties in investigating the canonisation of the New Testament is the absence of any detailed accounts of this process. This essay aims to make use of current research to trace the diverse and complex issues and significant junctures of canonical development up to 451CE.

  • Volume 57 The beginnings of the young Anglican movement
    • Abstract: Hill, David
      Frederick Milton Hill as a young man was heavily involved in his parish church of the Holy Sepulchre, Northampton, England, as a youth worker and Bible study leader. During that time he heard the call to ministry in the then Church of England's Brotherhood of the Good Shepherd. He commenced his theological training at St John's College Morpeth in 1927. It was there that he met Ernest Burgmann who was at that time Principal of the College. On completing his training he was ordained deacon in late 1929 and joined the Brotherhood of the Good Shepherd based in Dubbo NSW. He was sent to the Parish of Bourke where he took a keen interest in religious education and youth work in the Parish.
