Following last Thursday's website posting about The Australian Fires, we were contacted by Mike Naylor, the Faith producer at BBC 3 Counties radio, We put him in touch with Judith Purling, wife of our former Australian minister Rev. David Purling, who wrote the website piece. Judith, in turn, put Mike in touch with her friend, the President of the Uniting Church in Australia, Dr Deidre Palmer.
