Open Air Service

A week after the 1994 Como bushfires, twenty three years ago today, we held an open air service in the grounds of the church.  The media were in attendance and the back of my head and my hair was on the evening news.

After the service, Dad and some others knocked over some unsafe walls that were in danger of toppling.  Note that some of the photos of the cleanup in my last post were taken after this.

The Macaulays could still smile after having lost their home, can you believe it?

This is Dad holding two of the lecterns saved by the firies.  The firies also saved part of the baptismal register (but my page had fallen out and was missing), and the photocopier.  They continued to use the photocopier for several years, and the lectern on the right is still in use in the rebuilt church.

Your dad just needs the hat and he'd look like Angus Young from AC/DC.
