Step into the boat and sail,
hold each other's hand;
you can go anywhere together:
sailing on his ocean, underneath his sky, guided by his shining stars through the night, through the night — he will be your light!

Step into the wind and fly, hold each other's hand; you can go anywhere together:
gliding on his breezes, riding on the wind
— all the songs he teaches you, you can sing,
you can sing — he will be your wings!

Step into the road and run,
hold each other's hand;
you can go anywhere together:
running down his valleys, resting in his shade, guided by his shining sun everyday,
everyday — he will be your way!

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.
