Mid winter lunch

Last Friday the available local Workplace Support Chaplains had a mid winter meal at the kiosk at the Botanical Gardens. It was a good time to spend with people of like mind. These people have been regular chaplains visiting people in places like ambulance stations, a casino, concrete manufacturers, road work sites, power line companies, freezing works, supermarkets, homes for people with handicaps, brewery, etc. etc.  They have helped people work their way through heaps of problems.  Family break ups, workplace deaths, difficult kids, financial problems, stress, just a listening ear for day to day life events and much much more are all the sorts of things these folk share in day in and day out. We do the same sort of work but we are very different people.
