Last year I facilitated a series of prayer workshops at St John’s Anglican Church, Canberra. It was then I met Rev Greg Thompson. Last night I was fortunate enough to be able to attend his Ordination as a Bishop in the Church of God and his installation as the Bishop of the Northern Territory.

The Cathedral was packed. People had come from near and far to be with Greg during his Ordination. Clearly this was a man who had touched many lives. The service was very moving with a mix of traditional and cultural. Of particular note was the reading of the Epistle in one of the local languages and the rousing singing by members of a local college choir.
