1. Little David was a shepherd.
He became a mighty king.
When his people were in trouble, killed Goliath with his sling.

2. Little Isaac, angel promised
— Sarah laughed at what he said. She was old and didn’t know that Israel was up ahead.

3. Little Moses, hidden baby,
sister Miriam was there.
Pharaoh’s daughter saw him crying — she had love enough to spare.

4. Little Samuel, son of Hannah,
in the temple in the night,
got a message to deliver
— could he speak it in the light?

5. Little Jesus in the manger, shepherds heard the angels sing. More important than the Caesar: he’s the greatest, he’s the king!

Dorothy & I had quite a bit of contact with Victor Harbor Lutheran congregation when Detlev Vosgerau was pastor there. We were going to lead the music for a service where the local Lutheran school was involved. The theme Detlev came up with led to this song — another way of relating some of the Bible’ s story, some of salvation history.


ALWS 5/10/23

To say I've been inactive on my website is a serious understatement! I've written nothing here since early 2021. 

So, does this mean the world has stopped for us, that nothing is happening?
A major event for us in 2022 was moving house in October. We had been in Modbury Heights since July 1993.Now we're back in Klemzig.

In May 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.
Since then we have visited Box Hill & Loxton with Jonathan & Julie Krause as part of the Asante presentations, promoting the cause of ALWS. Still to come this year are Asante events in Toowoomba & Rochedale (Nov 26 & 27) and Perth (Dec 10)

Looking forward to seeing many people on these occasions.
