1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (ESV)

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[a] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away

Royal Flying Doctor Service celebrating 90 years of service

(Sunday May 20, the Scots' Church Melbourne hosted The Royal Flying Doctor Service)

The Royal Flying Doctor Service is one of the largest and most comprehensive aeromedical organisations in the world, providing extensive primary health care and 24-hour emergency service to people over an area of 7.69 million square kilometres.

Delivered by a dedicated team of professionals, using the latest in aviation, medical and communications technology, and supported by a vast number of volunteers and supporters, the RFDS is vital for those that live, work and travel in rural and remote Australia.

In the last year their 69 aircraft have flown 26,412,555  kilometres  - which equals 600 flights around the earth or 34 times to the moon and back. They have 24 airbases, hold 44 Clinics every day and have 2,338 Medical Chests. 

Donations to this very essential service can be made online at or by calling 1300 669 659 or (03) 8412 0490
