July 20. Day 201.Pouring cold water on it

As a VERY regular visitor to South Bank I thought there were no more surprises but I thought wrong. I suppose with the Regional Flavours festival on this weekend I shouldn't have expected it to be just another weekend but the surprises were outside the confines of the festival in the pool. There another of people were being immersed in a Water Baptism ceremony being conducted by Paddington-based Forever Church. Then Pastor Brad, Pastor Danny and Pastor Sarah had buckets of ice water poured over their heads as part of the ice water challenge to raise funds for cancer research. That, it has to be said, is really taking religion to the people.
