Like Ants After the Picnic 

3.15pm strikes and the campus comes alive. Students scurrying off to refuel for the next few hours. Like ants who have spotted the best picnic and are off to enjoy the spoils of their score. Refuelling for the journey is a God given rhythm.

One of my sons decided eating is overrated. Eating is so ordinary. “What is the point because we just need to do it again in a few hours?” Apparently, a pointless waste of time. Time. Time that could be used to play music, build inventions, read, and craft. However, the world has been set in motion. Everything has a season and a reason… even the ordinary task of eating.

Valuing the ordinary is a gift. We see Jesus using the ordinary in his parables, stories and teaching. Valuing the ordinary rhythms of life takes patience, time, attention, and wisdom. In the ordinary we can enjoy the feast of life God has set out for us. We can value the providers of our meals, the restful much needed snooze, the rejuvenation of play, or the gift of legs to take us on a walk.

We have been blessed here at Carey with a lavish picnic of goodies!!  Not only do we have the value of eating together but learning together. I pray you relish this opportunity to refuel for a lifetime of loving, serving and living with Jesus. I pray your ordinary rhythms are filled with the extraordinary presence of a God who cares about the details. I pray you will taste and see that the Lord is so so so so GOOD!

CHAPEL WORSHIP - Water into Wine

In chapel we continue our theme of Feast. John Tucker will be speaking on John 2:1-11, the remarkable story of a wedding feast where Jesus turns water into wine.

If you can't be physically present for chapel, don't forget we'll livestream this on the Carey Student Facebook Group. Get connected if you aren't already.


See you at 12.40pm on Monday and 12.00pm on Tuesday.
What's your favourite lunch? Or suggestion on a new menu item?

All students are very welcome to join the Semester Two Orientation for new students.

The student handbook has key information about where to find important information and who to talk to if you have questions about your enrolment, fees, courses or other academic and pastoral support.

If you are a new student, Carey has developed a self-directed induction course called First Steps which is available on CareyOnline. All new students are required to complete this course within the first four weeks of semester, and it will cover key aspects of academic literacy, academic writing and important aspects of academic integrity.

This course should appear under My Courses in CareyOnline. If you have any issues accessing the course please talk to any of the library team.
