Wednesday Night at Macquarie

I look forward to Wednesday nights when I am teaching in Australia. This is because I usually have the opportunity to go to Bible study at the Macquarie Church of Christ.

Macquarie Church of Christ - North Ryde, NSW, Australia - Large treeIt is always good to study the Bible with friends, especially with some that I have known for a little more than 12 years.

I really like this big eucalyptus tree that is near the church building. It soars into the sky and is so stately. I need to look back some day and see if I have pictures from 12 years ago and see how much it has changed.

I also look forward to Sundays as I know I will be able to worship with my friends. I am not sure exactly how many Sundays I have spent with the congregation at Macquarie, but it must be somewhere between 20 and 25.  This means that over time I have spent almost half a year in Australia.

The walk to the church building is quite scenic. On one of my walks to Bible study I saw this noisy kookaburra.

See my post Laughing Kookaburra for more pictures.

I was especially happy tonight to see two friends who I have known since the day they met.

My friends met the first day that I was in Australia and now are married with two cute kids. I have enjoyed observing the milestones in their life over the years.

Wonderful memories tonight as I write this post.
