LOVE IS THE LAW

1. Spring follows winter, as sun follows rain; with thunder comes lightning,
it's always the same.
The world keeps on rolling
through day, month and year;
the sun needs no telling that daybreak is here.

2. O how I would like to be just like the sun,
O how I would like to know what must be done. It's always a struggle between right and wrong. I need you, Lord Jesus, to guide me along.

3. The promise was made
through your prophet, that we
would live by your spirit, that we would be free: laws would be written on paper no more -
our hearts are the paper and love is the law.

4. "My Spirit I leave you, although I must go, my Spirit I leave you, my peace you will know. Love one another as I have loved you.
This I have told you, this you must do."

5. We thank you, our Father, for freedom to slip, for freedom to stumble, for freedom to trip; Christ is our helper, to him I will cling.
Love is the song he has taught us to sing.


1974. The music comes from an album by British folk-rock group Steeleye Span, and is the music for a traditional song called "Copshawholme Fair". Living by the Spirit of God should look and feel markedly different from living by the law. More on that elsewhere


2019 - a big year 

July 26 1949 Robin Mann was born, 9th child of Arthur & Elsie Mann

November 5 1949 Dorothy Stiller was born, 4th child of Hugo & Valmai Stiller

December 20 1969 Robin & Dorothy were married at Christ Church Lutheran, Murray Bridge

So, in 2019 we have some special anniversaries to celebrate. Apart from a trip in Turkey in May, we're still working on other ideas. A night of music seems to be a likely starter.
