HAND IN HAND

(also in 'God.Version 1.0' CD & book)

1. When I consider God's design,
raging seas and searing sand,
I hold my breath,
but even more, I stand in awe
when all creation joins in praise,
hand in hand, hand in hand.
All creation joins in praise,
hand in hand.

2. When I consider Jesus Christ,
beaten, killed and broken man,
I hold my breath,
but even more, I stand in awe
when broken people come to him,
hand in hand, hand in hand.
Broken people come to him,
hand in hand.

3. When I consider human kind,
feuding tribes from every land,
I hold my breath,
but even more, I stand in awe
when black and white return to Christ,
hand in hand, hand in hand.
Black and white return to Christ,
hand in hand.

4. When I consider God's own church,
sinful sort of saintly band,
I hold my breath,
but even more, I stand in awe
when sinners come to share God's meal,
hand in hand, hand in hand.
Sinners come to share God's meal,
hand in hand.

ALWS 29/5/24

In May 2023 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.

Last year we visited churches in SA, Vic, Qld and WA with Jonathan & Julie Krause promoting the cause of ALWS.

Coming up soon:

* Nuriootpa (St Petri) Saturday June 22, 4 pm

To be confirmed:
Bordertown July 28,
Everton Park (Qld) August 17,
Canberra August 24 

Looking forward to seeing you at one of these events
