You've got the strangest ways, ... how can I understand you?

  1. Man say take it, take it, take it, you say give it away.
    Woman say hold it, hold it, hold it, you say let it go.

    You say living starts with dying,
    you say happiness starts with crying, you say rich is poor, and poor is rich, and I never heard you lying.

  2. Man say bigger, he want bigger,
    you come ever so small.
    Woman say stronger, she want stronger, you come ever so weak.
    They were looking for a strong man,
    a hero with a strong hand,
    you came with peace, you came with love, they thought you were the wrong man.

  3. When man say failure, I'm a failure, you say that's my boy.
    When woman say loser, I'm a loser, you say that's my girl.

    You say don't be scared to stumble, you might meet me when you tumble. You say first is last, and last is first, the way with me is humble.

‘God. Version 1.0’ is entirely different to the one we expect to encounter. Reflection on the life of Jesus continually challenges most of what we commonly regard as ‘common’ sense.


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
