Be Free…Be Friends

Do you know real freedom today? To be the person you were called to be, using the gifts and talents that you have been given? To be you today and not the girl from yesterday, or the guy from last decade? To have the old ways erased and the fumbling mistakes forgotten?When we have a real encounter with our Creator there is the promise of freedom, of making everything new, the knowledge of grace, mercy, love and hope.
2 Corinthians 5:17¬†The Message¬†….. says:
Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it! All this comes from the God who settled the relationship between us and him, and then called us to settle our relationships with each other. God put the world square with himself through the Messiah, giving the world a fresh start by offering forgiveness of sins. God has given us the task of telling everyone what he is doing. We’re Christ’s representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God’s work of making things right between them. We’re speaking for Christ himself now: Become friends with God; he’s already a friend with you.

Two months absence….


Where have we been? Honestly I don’t know. To say that family life and work and all having colds and flu and other diseases and weekends of visitors would be to make too many excuses.

We are all alive and well. We have spent time with some great old friends and new ones too.
e have been to Hobart, Port Fairy, Melbourne and home again. We have had BBQs in the Grampians and cooked meat on open fires. Life is full and rich.
Here is a sneak preview.
