Rev. Peter Hastie, Principal of the Presbyterian Theological College preached at our annual Seafarer’s (Naval) Service, from Acts 27 concerning the shipwreck the Apostle Paul endured on his journey to Rome. Peter asked the question, ‘How do you handle your worst fears?’ and then proceeded to provide encouragement from the way Paul trusted in God’s promises and plans in the most dangerous of situations, encouraging us to also ‘cast our anchors deep’ into the solid nature of those promises God gives us in His Word. (Unfortunately there was no sound recording due to an oversight.) The service was attended by members of Bendigo’s Ex-Navalmen’s Club, Lieutenant Commander Amy York, RAN, OAM, Cr Elise Chapman, Lisa Chesters MP and cadets from the TS Bendigo
