1 You’re the beginning of everything, maker of air & cloud & wing; you’re the creator of stars that sing — thank God, you’re here!
We are originals, everyone.
Never again will our race be run. No-one will ever do what you’ve done — thank God, you’re here!
See all the stars in the night-time
— where have they gone in the day? Wonder & miracle everywhere
— thanks for letting me stay!

2 Tyrannosaurus has gone away. Now the humans have their say. We’ll be history one day!
Thank God, you’re here!
Marvel at every thing you can
— oh, what a woman! What a man! Blade of grass & grain of sand! Thank God, you’re here.
Fabulous fish in the ocean, beautiful birds in the air; under the ground, under water — woh, another world there.
Repeat v.1, last line 3x

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.
