1. When easy answers come to questions why,
we look for God to hear us — there’s no reply.
In front or close behind me, you’re never seen.
If I could ever find you, what would you say or mean?

2. Disaster strikes again, we ask you why.
Why don’t you ever answer before we die?
Rich people have the power, live long and well, their children play in safety, they hear no tolling bell.

3. O God of every space, my heart it cries.
For when I start to question, you terrify.
The darkness weighs upon me, it holds me down.
Your thoughts are way beyond me and silent is your sound.

ALWS 5/10/23

To say I've been inactive on my website is a serious understatement! I've written nothing here since early 2021. 

So, does this mean the world has stopped for us, that nothing is happening?
A major event for us in 2022 was moving house in October. We had been in Modbury Heights since July 1993.Now we're back in Klemzig.

In May we travelled to the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia, seeing work supported by Australian Lutheran World Service. Dorothy and I are Ambassadors for the ALWS programme, Lives You Touch. We are encouraging people to leave money in their will for the work of ALWS. We committed to leave a third of our will many years ago and hope many others can touch lives in this way.
Since then we have visited Box Hill & Loxton with Jonathan & Julie Krause as part of the Asante presentations, promoting the cause of ALWS. Still to come this year are Asante events in Toowoomba & Rochedale (Nov 26 & 27) and Perth (Dec 10)

Looking forward to seeing many people on these occasions.
