Now I know where the noise comes from...

We can hear the rumble of trains underneath our home. It's not noisy. But you can feel it. If I'm up, I can tell the first train coming into the city at the crack of dawn. We live just above (and to the north) of Wynyard Station in the heart of the City. We live in the end of town that Miranda Divine from the Sydney Morning Herald calls "The Manhattan end of George Street."

But thanks to my friend Jasper Lee, I can now see how close to my home the trains actually are. The photos above are from the State Archives. The Train line was opened in 1932. The building of the church I pastor is in each of the photos.

Today's Hymns and Songs

OK, Craig blogged the songs they sung at Annandale today. I thought I might blog ours, just for fun:

8:30AM Book of Common Prayer: (Mark 12:41-44)
  • O Worship the King
  • I know that my Redeemer Lives
  • Thank you, O Lord of Heaven and Earth.
10:15AM City Church: (Mark 12:41-44)
  • Put a New Song in my Heart
  • Worthy of all Praise
  • Take my Life and Let it be
  • Blessed Be the Name of the Lord
6PM Evening Church (Text: Jonah 3)
  • God of Wonders
  • Come Thou Fount
  • The Lord is Gracious and Compassionate.
Let Glory be Given to God alone, right?
