  • Into The Adelaide Hills

    Driving up the freeway in the light drizzle to Strathalbyn reminded me fondly of growing up in Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills. Arriving at the Salem Lutheran Church and its picturesque setting was refreshing. A beautiful country church in a country paddock beside a small creek celebrating its 150th anniversary. Most of the pews had people in them and the portable screen survived my PowerPoint presentation. Thanks for the cuppa too.

    I had a quick trip into Strathalbyn for the second service. Thankfully the people of Strathalbyn were very patient with me as I was running late. After a few hiccups with the liturgy and testing the PowerPoint operator with my presentation, the service went smoothly. Thank you to the PowerPoint operator for helping me. I was also excited to hear that you may be trialling the use of a Worship DVD for your worship service due to your pastoral vacancy.

    The sausage sizzle at the end of worship went down very well too. Thanks for a great day!

  • Fullarton Lutheran Homes

    I had the pleasure of being the guest speaker at the volunteers lunch at Fullarton Lutheran Homes. It was a fantastic celebration of what volunteers do in the community, especially at Fullarton Lutheran Homes. There were about 50 volunteers at the lunch, and yes, there was red wine J. Even our own Annette Wessling was honoured by receiving an award for 25 years of service at the Homes. Annette had even packed the Lutheran Media showbags that were given out on the day. Thank you Annette. And thanks to Fullarton Lutheran Homes for the opportunity and a yummy lunch.

  • Mail Out Day

    Our reliable and hardworking volunteers came in to help with mailing out our latest newsletter. They are a wonderful bunch of dedicated people who want the good news of Jesus Christ to go out into people’s lives through media. We reduced how many we send to congregations this year and have posted letters to people who have supported us in the past. You may end up with one in the post, one with The Lutheran, and one in your pigeon hole at church. Sorry for the double up but we actually saved money by doing this. Thanks to The Lutheran for helping us with the design, production and distribution too! If you have received multiple copies, please share them with your family, friends or neighbours. Thanks for your support, we can’t share the good news of Jesus Christ without you! God bless.
