My Heart is Moved…
We are here for each other
To hold each other in times of suffering and distress
Lost and struggling to cope.
It is we who are the presence of God
In our dry, burnt country.
In responding compassionately
We are in truth
The heart and hands of God.
How can I help?
The effects of fire and drought go much deeper than the physical scars of land, creatures and livelihood. We are all touched and affected by the aftermaths of such events. Here are but a few ways we can contribute to the recovery of spirit and community.
- Buy from the Bush
- Google “How to support farmers in drought and fire” to find a number of suggestions on how to provide practical, volunteer or financial support
- Holiday in rural areas – Australian Silo Art Trail
- Save the Koala Get Involved Bushfire Emergency
- Rituals for Life, Love and Loss by Dorothy McRae McMahon (Book Depository)
- Facing the Drought
- After the Fires
