FOR YOU – DEEP STILLNESS

For you, deep stillness of the silent inland For you, deep blue of the desert skies
For you, flame red of the rocks and stones For you, sweet water from hidden springs.

From the edges seek the heartlands
and when you're burnt by the journey may the cool winds of the hovering Spirit soothe and replenish you.

In the name of Christ, In the name of Christ

Thanks ...

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.

THANKS, RAY!!
