1. He's the cause of Christmas Day - nice one, Jesus.
Slept where animals eat their hay - Jesus, number one.
Shepherds heard the angels' joy - nice one, Jesus.
Peace'll come through this one boy - Jesus, number one.

2. Wise men came from far away - nice one, Jesus.
following a star, they say - Jesus, number one.
gave him gifts of great expense - nice one, Jesus.
gold and myrrh and frankincense - Jesus, number one.

Na-na, na-na, na-na-nah! Na-na, na-na, na-na-nah!

3. What was wrong he made all right
Turned our blindness into sight
Filled the hungry with his bread
And he even raised the dead

4. He said we should worry less
Life is more than we possess
'Look at birds and flowers too
- God will care the same for you'

5. He was led from Nazareth
to the cross and into death
Fixed a broken world that way
lost his life but won the day

6. Naturally God made him rise
Even so we rubbed our eyes
And he's still alive and well
He'll be here for quite a spell.

Na-na ...
Na-na ...

1995. Soon after coming back from the Queensland trip with Jon and Thom, I had a session to do for the Golden Grove Primary. I wanted a song to tell Jesus' story with responses in it. It was originally meant to focus more on the suffering and death, but didn't quite come out that way.

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.
