PATIENTLY WAITING FOR YOU

1. God of night and day,
sun and moon obey,
only you know where the future goes. God of month and year,
teach us not to fear,
but rely on, keep our eye on you.

Patiently waiting for you,
there's nothing more we can do, We are completely dependent, like beggars, it's true.
We've got no life of our own,
lie in a valley of bones.
By the pain of your dying,
with your blood and your loss, give us your life, give us your life, give us your life.

2. Like the Israelites
fleeing in the night,
at the Red Sea, Pharaoh coming fast; you prepared a way
on that wondrous day;
there was dry land, water on each side.

3. Heal the broken bones, bring the restless home;
give us vision, your reality:
see with Easter eyes,
know the dead will rise,
keep on hoping till the final joy.

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
