The Pink Hat Luncheon 2018

Imagine a world where every cancer patient becomes a survivor.

Together we have the power to make it happen.

Around 130,000 Australians are likely to be diagnosed with cancer this year and one in two Australians will be diagnosed during their lifetime. It is estimated that by 2040, there'll be 1.9 million Australians living with or beyond a cancer diagnosis. Sadly though, it is one of the leading causes of death in Australia with an estimated 45,700 people passing away from it each year, many of them children.

A diagnosis of cancer has a profound, unimaginable effect on a person, their family and friends. But, we can all help. By filling the gaps in our knowledge, spreading the word about cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and support services; donating to research projects and service organisations like Cancer Council and, attending fundraisers like The Pink Hat Luncheon; we can improve their lives and the lives of future generations.

Pledge your support for a cancer free future by purchasing tickets to this year's Pink Hat Luncheon to be held on Sunday 24 June 2018 at the Greek Macedonian Club. Tickets are only $50 and include a fabulous 3 course smorgasbord, guest speakers, entertainment, generous door prizes and raffle. All monies raised will go directly to Cancer Council WA.

The Pink Hat Luncheon is an officially registered Cancer Council WA event (Donor ID# 1179781). Both men and women are welcome to attend.

By attending The Pink Hat Luncheon you will help Cancer Council WA to continue funding world-class cancer research, run education and prevention programs and provide much-needed support to West Australians affected by cancer and their families.

Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and you will be sent a tax receipt.

The Light Shines in the Darkness

Since the beginning of time when God created heaven and earth He commanded that there be light (Genesis 1:3). This light was divided from the sphere of darkness and the day was divided from the sphere of night. This pattern of day and night has continued without fail since Creation. As we know, light is essential for all living things. A “garden of delight” was created to place the man that God had formed from the earth. This garden was to provide for all of man’s needs. According to God’s plan this garden was a place without corruption, without illness or death, it was a perfect place where man was to enjoy full communion with God.

In the garden of delight there was no distinction or awareness of good and evil as there is in the world today, because man had not lost his innocence and was therefore not subject to evil. Adam and Eve however chose to disobey God and ate of the tree of knowledge which brought to them as God had warned, knowledge of good and evil with its full consequence, and that is death. They willingly chose this path because they believed the serpent, who told them that by acquiring the knowledge of good and evil, they would be like gods. To make matters worse, when they disobeyed God and realised their nakedness, God asked Adam and Eve in turn, to account for what had happened. Tragically Eve blamed the serpent and Adam blamed Eve. Even when asked, they chose not to blame themselves and accept responsibility for their disobedience. From this time on, man lost his communion with God, became mortal and introduced in his heart spiritual darkness. His new destiny was to be returned to the dust from which he was fashioned. He was banished along with Eve from the garden of delight which was specially prepared for him. He was now to live in a land that would consume him and itself be subject to the corruption and spiritual darkness he introduced in his own heart.
The reality and danger of this spiritual darkness exists in all men to the present day. The danger of this spiritual darkness which all humanity inherited from Adam and Eve is its dreadful and fearful consequence, spiritual death. Spiritual death is a consequence of the separation of man from God. This loss of communion with God and its effect is not limited to man’s relationship with God alone, but infects every aspect of his being and his everyday relationships with people. Its consequence is that it trivialises man who was made in God’s image. Self interest and pride dictate fallen man who had everything provided by God’s Grace in the garden of delight; fallen man lost his focus and remembrance of God, and with a darkened spirit became dispersed, fragmented, distracted, inclined towards serving other masters, continuing disobedience and constantly under attack from the demons who took pleasure in his fall and continuing fall from grace.

It is not in God’s plan however to leave man in this miserable fallen state. But as by free will man fell, by free will he is given the opportunity to be re-stored to a state of communion with God. This restoration or healing has been offered to man through Christ. This is why we refer to Christ as being our Saviour. God the Father sent His Son, the New Adam, to offer man an opportunity to return to Him.

All interested persons are now invited to register for this year's Centre for the Greek Language (CGL) Examinations to be held in May at St. Andrew's Grammar (officially-recognised CGL Examination Centre).

Prospective candidates of Greek and also non-Greek background are invited to test their written and spoken Greek language competency skills through these annual examinations. Successful candidates will be issued with a Certificate of Attainment in Greek from Greece's Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs, and the Centre for the Greek Language: Division for the Support and Promotion of the Greek Language (Thessaloniki, Greece).

There are 7 levels on offer, catering to a full spectrum of Greek language competencies. These include a level for children aged 8-12 years old (children who are over 8 years and below 12 years old on the 31st of May, 2018); a level for beginner adolescents and adults, through to a level for persons with excellent knowledge of the Greek language. Candidates younger than 16 are strongly advised to avoid taking the examinations for levels B2, C1 and C2 as the examination content for these levels may require general knowledge and experience beyond their years.
