1. When disciples were frightened,
so confused that he was dead,
Jesus came and stood among them:
"Peace be with you!" he said.

He is risen, risen!
He was dead but now he lives.
We were lost but he has found us
with the life he gives.

2. Can we see you, can we touch you
like disciples long ago?
Would it make any difference?
Do we doubt what we know?

3. Jesus, come and stand among us,
show yourself to us again.
We will speak what you tell us,
we will go where you send.

Based on John 20:19-31

Last Monday, November 19, I got back home after a 4 week trip, mostly in Queensland.Only possible because of
Ray Shillabeer.
He's been my driver for the past 7½ years, for trips to Victoria, ACT, NSW and Queensland. He likes to label himself as 'Ray the Roadie', but he's a lot more than that. For the churches & schools I've sung at, we both set up the sound gear - the amps, guitars et al. He then retires to a back seat, while I sing & play. Afterwards, at schools, we take the gear down together. But at churches, he looks after the gear, while I talk with people & sell CDs & books. We get to stay with people most places , & we both love meeting people, enjoying their terrific hospitality.
This trip was his swan-song. I know he's enjoyed the driving & meeting people, but I still don't know how to say thank you. In his modest, self deprecating way, he'd reject the label of 'Servant of Christ', but he's been that for me, & together we've been able to serve people in many places.
