Baptism Bag Lisa Doyle (Sunday Club Leader) recently presented to the Rector a ‘Baptism Bag’. This resource will be given to families in advance of a baptism to help think and reflect on the sacrament. It is particularly helpful where there are older siblings who can also interact and engage with what their younger sibling and parents are preparing for. Thank you Lisa!

Ash Wednesday The solemn season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, 1st March. A service of Preparation will be held in Holy Trinity at 8pm.

Mondays in Lent Throughout Lent we will be teaming up with our friends in St Paul’s, Glenageary where Dean Victor Stacey will be leading us through a study of John Pritchard’s book ‘Something more’. More details on page 23. The gatherings will take place every Monday in Lent (excluding Holy Week) at 8pm in St Paul’s Parish Centre. All welcome.

Count your Blessings A booklet ‘Count your Blessings’ will be available for use during Lent. The 40 days of Lent begin on Ash Wednesday and end on Easter Eve. The Sundays during Lent do not count as days of denial and abstinence. Daily during Lent the booklet outlines blessings and thoughts to consider and pray about and small financial contributions to be given. The proceeds of the ‘Count your Blessing’ devotional appeal may be for your own pocket (eg Holiday fund, etc) or you may like to donate it to parish funds!! You may like to keep this appeal booklet on your kitchen table with a jar beside it for your contributions. Perhaps you might like to see the day’s task over breakfast and see if you can carry it out

successfully during the day. We hope you will enjoy our devotional appeal and that God will bless each one of us as we pray and work together in these 40 days.

Nambiti Game Reserve A world apart, the wonder of nature hits home. Transported from everyday

Nambiti Game Reserve

A world apart, the wonder of nature hits home. Transported from everyday concerns, our

ranger Rheinhard and trusty land cruiser carry us over rough terrain. Dry rocky tracks cross the Bush. Acacia trees gnarled and distorted and low bushes with sharp white thorns dot the landscape. A sparsity of colour, relieved occasionally by clusters of small blue, white and yellow flowers, delicate butterflies and birds with bright plumage. We spot the African Hoopoe Bird

whose Zulu name Umzolozolo is the name of our Lodge, one of ten scattered over the Nambiti Game Reserve. We come across different birds from time to time, Canaries, Guinea fowl and Egyptian geese, a Golden Weaver bird weaving his nest which if his mate rejects he will start again and occasionally a hovering vulture. A Secretary bird stalking through the undergrowth on long legs is on the lookout for breakfast, snakes, which he will trample to death. At night we spot owls and night jars, scrub hares scampering away like large bunny rabbits, a lone jackal crossing the road and the bright eyes of a bushpig in the undergrowth. Tall brittle grass awaits the joy of the summer rains as do the dry dams and riverbeds. Nutrients

in the grass depleted now will be restored again to nourish the many varieties of Antelope. We

come to recognise Eland, tall and majestic, Kudu with their large ears lined as if with pink satin

and small sweet Impala and Duiker. We find Water Buck where they feel safest close to water, Steenbok and Blesbok who run heads nodding as if to clear some minor irritation, Red Hartebeest and Nyala whose faded white stripes will gleam with health and strength once more. These beautiful creatures will often freeze as we approach as if to pose for a photograph, confident in their camouflage. When pursued Kudu will lift their tails exposing a white spot which

acts as a decoy then drop their tails suddenly to confuse their predators. A family of Warthogs delight us exiting their burrow. Mother tail aloft like a tour guide’s umbrella

is confident that her charges will follow. Warthogs, diurnal animals share their burrows with

their nocturnal neighbours, Porcupine and Aardvark. Zebra and Wildebeest feed together, the Zebra crop the long grass while the Wildebeest graze in their wake. We humans could learn from this co-operation! We become accustomed to seeing tall, elegant, beautifully marked giraffe popular as companions as they can spot approaching danger. Ostrich black and brown, male and female respectively move on long legs across our path

guiding their vulnerable chicks. The female ostrich sits on her eggs during the day camouflaged on the brown earth and the male by night. Leopards, Cheetah and Hyena eluded us despite a night drive but close proximity to lions thrilled

us on several occasions. On our first trip out we got up close and almost personal with two

adult brothers nick-named Blondie and Darkie, then a little later through the Bush grapevine or rather the ranger’s co-operation we approached the two big boys again but now in the company

of a lioness and her two young sons. She had killed an Eland calf but only Darkie the dominant

male got to partake of it. Blondie, dominant where mating is concerned is thought to be the father of the two young males. We meet again some days later and in the absence of Blondie and Darkie find the young boys feasting on the remains of a Wildebeest while their mother watches

at a distance, growls from the youngster still feeding discourage us from approaching too close.

We see Hippo both in and out of water and note a pink secretion on their skin around their eyes known as Blood Sweat, a natural sun screen. Hippo can appear sluggish and sedentary but in

Nambiti Game Reserve … cont’d fact can move with speed and make fierce and dangerous

Nambiti Game Reserve … cont’d

fact can move with speed and make fierce and dangerous opponents, we keep our distance when watching a spectacular sunrise adjacent to their watering hole. White Rhino, sadly dehorned to foil the poachers outnumber the more elusive and aggressive Black Rhino their hostile behaviour has protected them from the poachers and they retain their horns. White rhino are grazers while black are browsers lifting their heads while feeding, although their eyesight is poor they are more aware of danger. The white rhino’s horns do grow again with time. On the positive side the males no longer kill each other when they fight. Dominant males have their own territory which they mark out by defecating and urinating. We came very close to a crash of rhino one male with three females and also a mother with her baby, named Kumba. Elephants feed as they go and we saw them on the move. Large males breaking branches and stripping bark. We came across Beefy (BFE) Big Friendly Elephant 48 years old, in musth full of testosterone blocking our path, we wisely backed away and came across a younger male drinking from a waterhole sucking up water with his trunk and throwing his head back tipping it into his mouth better than any beer swilling bloke! He even stretched out his trunk towards us to check us out. We also saw a herd walking in line mothers, youngsters, babies and all, wonderful. Beefy often keeps his distance from the herd preferring his own company as he can be intolerant of the young bulls but he also act as a mentor to them sharing his wisdom. We have had to search for Buffalo but find them resting in long grass the large male lying a little apart, perhaps his days are numbered as leader of the gang. He has become slow and grumpy, heightened testosterone and adrenalin break down the cartilage in his knees and they become very painful, no longer able to lead he gets pushed to the back where the trampled grass is un- appetising. He makes the decision to leave the group and become a ‘Dugga Boy’ Dugga is the Zulu word for mud, standing in cool mud helps to ease his pain leaving the herd for a new pathfinder to lead. Sadly the time has come for us to leave too but we take wonderful photos and memories away with us. We hope the rains will come soon to sustain this vital habitat and all its very special residents.

A Most Remarkable Puzzle! TestYour Bible Skills There are 30 books of the Bible in this

There are 30 books of the Bible in this paragraph. Can you find them? This is a most remarkable puzzle. It was found by a gentleman in an airplane seat pocket, on a flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu, keeping him occupied for hours. He enjoyed it so much; he passed it on to some friends. One friend from Illinois worked on this while fishing from his john boat. Another friend studied while playing his banjo. Elaine Taylor, a columnist friend, was so intrigued by it she mentioned it in her weekly newspaper column. Another friend judges the job of solving this puzzle so involving; she brews a cup of tea to help her nerves. There will be some names that are really easy to spot. That's a fact. Some people however will soon find themselves in a jam, especially since the book names are not necessarily capitalized. Truthfully, from answers we get, we are forced to admit it usually takes a minister or scholar to see some of them at the worst. Research has shown that something in our genes is responsible for the difficulty we have in seeing the books in this paragraph. During a recent fund raising event, which featured this puzzle, the Alpha Delta Phi lemonade booth set a new sales record. The local paper, The Chronicle, surveyed over 200 patrons who reported that this puzzle was one of the most difficult they had ever seen. As Daniel Humana humbly puts it, "the books are all right there in plain view, hidden from sight." Those able to find all of them will hear great lamentations from those who have to be shown. One revelation that may help is that books like Timothy and Samuel may occur without their numbers. Also, keep in mind that punctuation and spaces in the middle are normal. Achipper attitude will help you compete really well against those who claim to know the answers. Remember, there is no need for a mad exodus, there really are 30 books of the Bible lurking somewhere in this paragraph waiting to be found.
