Easter Dawn at Nyah

River Murray Reserve, Nyah. Easter morning 2019

Members of several churches gathered for an ecumenical service held at dawn on Easter morning by the river at Nyah. The service was led by Uniting and Anglican lay folk and a simple form of the Lord’s supper was led by Rev Peter Blundell. A reflection on the meaning of Easter, read by Doris Bradbury was beautifully punctuated by a chorus of Laughing Kookaburras. The orange glow of dawn over the Murray River added to the specialness of the occasion. Nearly twenty of us enjoyed toasted hot cross buns around the fire afterwards.
