  • Gentleness – the power to change

    “Gentleness and love go together; two sides of the one coin. You can’t have a gentle spirit towards someone you hate.

    What does it mean to be gentle? Is it a weakness or a strength? Can gentleness change things? This week on Face to Face, Rev Dr Noel Due talks about God’s gentleness. It has the power to change lives. Click here to listen to this week's program.

  • The Beautiful Riverland

    I had the pleasure of driving through the Riverland in South Australia. What a peaceful place. I can see why people would like to live by water. I managed to squeeze in a stop at Maize Island just outside of Waikerie. It’s an amazing place with cliffs, river red gums, and bird life. It reminded me of a peaceful place and the bible verse, “since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1

    The purpose of the trip was not just to see the river but to visit Renmark and Paringa and lead and preach at their worship service. I stayed with a kind and generous man, Colin Lindner, and people from the church took me out for lunch on Sunday. Thank you for making me feel very welcomed.

  • Worth Fighting For

    “Hi, my name’s Sophie, I’m 24 and when I was 8 my mum left. I don’t know if I felt like it then but it’s definitely been something I’ve had to deal with since then of feeling unworthy, unlovable, not worth fighting for. You get to this point where how could anyone else love me if a parent can’t love me enough to stay?”

    Have you ever felt unloved and not worth fighting for? Listen to Face to Face this week to hear Sophie’s story of finding acceptance and a new kind of family. You’ll discover that God believes you are worth fighting for.

  • Win The Toss – You Serve

    “If you win the toss, you serve. It’s not about receiving – it’s all about the advantage we have in serving.”

    In a game of tennis, its often best to serve first. This can give you the best chance of winning the game. Can this also be true for everyday life? What does it mean to serve? On Face to Face last week, Trevor Keller looked at serving. “You win and so do I”

  • Victorians and Tasmanians in Werribee

    The Lutheran Church of Australia district of Victoria and Tasmania recently met in Tarneit (near Werribee) in the Wyndham City Council. This council area has the fastest growing population in Australia where 140 new houses are opened every week. There is an amazing opportunity to share the good news of Jesus Christ with these people. There are people from many walks of life and countries which poses real challenges and opportunities to the Lutheran Church in the area. To help, Lutheran Media is broadcasting Face to Face through 3CS (3250 ACE Radio) from Colac.

    Lutheran Media attended the convention, listened to the people, and shared how the good news of Jesus Christ is being spread through media. Thank you to the LCA Victorian and Tasmanian district for inviting, listening, and welcoming us.

  • You’re Welcome

    Do you feel afraid when you walk into a new place for the first time? Like into a new friend’s house, a party, or entertainment venue? We like to feel welcomed, especially when we enter a new space on our own. On Face to Face this week I’ll be talking about being welcomed. Thankfully Jesus welcomes every one and wants everyone to come into his house.

    Check out the new video clip called “You’re Welcome” on www.facetoface.org.au or www.youtube.com/luthmedia
