From the Dean’s Desk
It’s been a busy parish weekend and I thank all of you for the commitment to
our Spring Market. It began on Friday night with an outstanding display of
photographic works and handmade glass jewellery by Peter Brady and Penny
Packham respectively. Thanks go to Tania Harvey who initiated this ‘opening’
for our Spring weekend. Thank you too, to Heather and Greg Cozens who have
gathered people together to run stalls, find teams and make our market such a
success. It was a delightful day and as we all know, a great deal of hard work
behind the scenes before it can happen.
This afternoon we welcome The Rev’d Peter Rose, our guest preacher, for 4.30
Evensong. Deaconed here in Bathurst in 2004, he has had a fascinating
ministry in military and parliamentary circles in the ACT.
An article titled Nine Extraordinary Human Abilities describes some truly
unusual and amazing skills. You are likely familiar with ‘absolute pitch’-
demonstrated by those talented individuals who can sing a particular note at will
without hearing a reference—such as a note played on a piano. Only 3% of the
general population is blessed with this ability. Another gifted group is the ‘super
-tasters’ - people who can taste with greater intensity than the rest of us mere
mortals. Then there’s something called ‘tetrachromacy’. More common in
women than men, tetrachromacy is the ability to perceive subtle differences in
colour, far beyond the average person. Here’s one you may not be familiar
with: ‘echolocation’. Like a bat, this is the ability to use sounds to help navigate
from place to place. Perhaps some of you can associate numbers or letters
with certain colours—or hear a specific word which triggers a particular
sensation, or taste on the tongue. If you can, you have a special talent known
as ‘synethesisa’. Have you ever known a ‘mental calculator’? Just as the name
implies, these are gifted individuals who can add, subtract and multiply great
sums with great speed, using nothing more than brain power. And finally, we
have ‘eidetic memory’, which is more commonly known as photographic
memory. Compared to those with such an ability, we are more likely to feel like
we forgot the camera!
Interesting, isn’t it? Extraordinary abilities indeed. But the truth is, each of us is
a unique masterwork of God, endowed with our own unique set of extraordinary
abilities. Because God willed us into being, each of us is essential to the
fulfilment of His creative design. And no matter what your super or not-so-super
abilities may be, to be true to your God-given destiny, you must first be true to
yourself. You must first recognise yourself as the one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable,
priceless gem of God’s creation that you are. Understanding what you are, is
the necessary precondition to knowing what you are to become.
