YOU ARE INVITED
Y-O-U A-R-E, You are invited! Y-O-U A-R-E, You are invited!
2. So come and celebrate a family,
come and celebrate a friend.
Life is bigger than a dollar,
bigger than a fashion or a trend. (Chorus 2X)
You are invited to God's party, to God's feast.
You are invited from the
north, south, west and east.
You are invited, tell your family, tell your friends. You are invited to the life that never ends. (Chorus)

Last Monday, November 19, I got back home after a 4 week trip, mostly in Queensland.Only possible because of
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.
