Lily and Pip Kwiecien with horse Betty. Photo by Tracy Hardy.

Just horsing around When it comes to helping out, Tauranga mother and daughter Pip and Lily Kwiecien don’t just horse around. The pair will be presented with this year’s Tauranga Riding for the Disabled Volunteer of the Year award on Saturday, June 2. Usually the trophy is awarded to one person, but this year Tauranga RDA felt both Pip and Lily deserved trophy recognition. Pip says it was her daughter’s passion for volunteering at the RDA which inspired her to help out too. “It’s pretty cool that we have both been awarded the trophy but she does most of the work.”

Lily began helping out on the weekends when she was 10 years old. Five years on, she can’t get enough. Tauranga RDA chief executive officer Kat Macmillan is delighted to award the trophy for the second year running and says she would be lost without the pair. “I don’t know what we’d do without Pip and Lily. It’s people like this that are the backbone of our organisation. Always when we are in need of an extra pair of hands, these two step forwards and put their hands up. I can’t thank them enough.” Tauranga RDA is seeking more volunteers to help run its programmes. Phone 07 54418989 or email info@ By Zoe Hunter

Little Blue Penguins at risk on our beaches Staff at ARRC Wildlife Centre are concerned with the number of little blue penguins being injured or killed by dogs on Tauranga beaches.

Co-ordinator Sue Mackey says their vet team frequently attend to wildlife injured due to dog attacks on local beaches. Penguins are the most commonly affected species, often brought in hypothermic and collapsed with bite wounds, she says. “It is very difficult to resuscitate these birds and unfortunately many of them end up dying. “Those few that pull through often make excellent recoveries and are fully rehabilitated back into the wild thanks to the fabulous care of our volunteers, especially Chrissy Jefferson of Oropi Native Bird Rescue Haven.” ARRC staff are asking dog owners to be careful with their dogs and keep them supervised and on leads – especially on beaches near Mount Maunganui, where little blue penguins are most common.

A remarkable man Alpha growing rapidly A young man returned home from overseas, despondent and depressed. He felt himself to be in need of what he had tried to offer others: “I went to convert the natives, but oh, who will convert me?” he despaired. His name? It was John Wesley. His two years as a missionary in the distant colony of Georgia were a disaster and ended with a sense of failure. A few months later, Wesley went unwillingly to a meeting where his heart was “strangely warmed”. Here he felt an assurance of God’s love, acceptance and forgiveness that

revolutionised his life and ministry. Every year, Methodists remember this remarkable man on Wesley Day, 24 May, the anniversary of this event. Wesley travelled extensively across the country, preaching in the open air, establishing chapels, encouraging people to support each other, writing about the love of God, setting up schools and addressing the social needs of the day. Despite his apparent failure in Georgia, his work in Britain gave hope to many ordinary people. Methodists continue to be grateful for the life of

Alpha in the Bay of Plenty is growing rapidly. Many people feel uneasy because they are unsure as to what is true, especially about God. Here is your chance to investigate God without anyone preaching at you. Honesty is always the best policy but firstly we need to be honest with ourselves. People who attend the Alpha course often make the comments like: “I never knew what God was about.” “Why didn’t someone tell me about this before?” “It is so good it is almost unbelievable.” “My parents sent me to Sunday school but that dropped off when I became a teenager.” “Where have I been all these years?” Most of us do a good job of criticising others. Likewise, it is easy to have negative view about God without knowing really knowing what He is like. At Alpha you are welcome to bring your genuine questions. For instance: “Why is there so much evil around us? Where do moral ethics come from? Why should it matter? What about suffering? Who is this Jesus?” The best thing is that Alpha is very open and your opinion counts. Where else can you attend a course where you have your say rather than just being lectured? The format of the 10-week course is: a meal, a DVD presentation and then an informal and relaxed group discussion over coffee. There is no cost but you can make a small donation to cover the meal cost if you wish. Starting date this term: June 11 at 7pm in the foyer at Holy Trinity Church For more information, phone 07 578 7718.

A tin anniversary

The hardest thing

In celebration of Insight Architecture’s 10th birthday (internationally dubbed a ‘tin’ anniversary) the company donated four boxes of tinned food to Tauranga Foodbank this week. Pictured: Tauranga Foodbank trustee Islay De Vries with directors Richard Hale and Matt Hodson.

The hardest thing for Christians to accept is that they are totally forgiven of all past, present, and future sins because of what Jesus purchased for us at the cross. If you live in fear whether or not you have sinned today, you will never walk in victory; in fact you will be disempowered when you are sin-conscious and not God- conscious (conscious of His Goodness). Yes, of course, sin has consequences, I don’t deny that. The receiving of Jesus as your saviour automatically wipes away the sins, the only sin that gets you to hell is the rejection of Him. The 10 commandments were instituted by God to show people they needed a saviour because they were impossible to keep, anyway they have been superseded by the New Testament. A simple command: ‘love your neighbour as you do yourself ’. Everything in the Old Testament has to go through the cross to see what Jesus has done for us, e.g. in the Old, sacrifice of animals was done to cover their sins, in the New Jesus was our sacrifice, not to cover but obliterate our sins. Same as generational curses, they were also taken care of (unless you want to keep them) at the cross. You are a new creation. Let’s understand that it is not how good you are but how good He is; if you can grasp this, you will see His grace and mercy and won’t want to sin. You notice when people live under the law they end up with wacko doctrine and cults, like don’t smoke, don’t eat meat, don’t eat with sinners, cut yourself off from your family, don’t wear make-up‌ the list goes on and on. It should be the gospel of don’ts. None of this will make you righteous, just worn out and a miserable lemon-sucking Christian. Many Christians still believe God makes them sick if they sin – ignorance gone to seed, healing is a free gift from God. If you don’t agree with me, no problem, I respect your views to be sick, broke and living in defeat. By pastor Rod Collins God bless you.

Pin Up Pet Of The Week

Ripping good fun Western Bay of Plenty schools ripped into work on the rugby field on Wednesday battling it out for rugby supremacy in the WBOP Rippa Rugby World Cup at Mount Maunganui. More than 600 children from 32 schools took part, sporting various national colours.

My name is Roxy and I am a 3 month old female Staffy Cross. I came to the SPCA as a lost and lonely little stray puppy who never got claimed so now I am hoping for a wonderful person or family to come in who are looking for a happy playful little puppy to add to their family. I will need a little training to learn the basics but once I know that then you will have a great new puppy to be proud of and who will give you years of love and devotion in return. Please ask to meet me and see if I might be the perfect puppy for you or for more information please phone 5780245. Ref no. 18485

Disco sees a personal goal achieved This month’s recipient for Mobility Equipment & Services’ Special Achievers Award is Shelley Maffey. Shelley, who attends Arohanui Wilrose Centre, is celebrating after achieving a personal goal by organising a fundraising disco recently at the centre. The 1960s themed disco was

a great success and raised more than $500 in cash and pet food donations for Tauranga SPCA. Shelley is pictured receiving her award from Mobility Equipment & Services administration officer Colleen Gordon.
