  • Mission, Translating, Media

    So what do mission, bible translating, and media have in common?

    It may sound like a joke that needs a punchline but there is something serious that links all three. They spread The Word. And that word is Jesus Christ. Through spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, people receive God’s promises and therefore his hope, peace, joy, life, and love.

    Thanks to the Lutheran Bible Translators Australia for inviting me to preach at their annual church service which was held this year at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Murray Bridge.

    Let’s encourage each other to share the good news of Jesus Christ and not be afraid to say that, “I’m a Christian. I believe in Jesus Christ”.

    “One of the great things about songs is that you can recall songs much better than just things that are said, because songs actually use both sides of the brain”

    This year Robin Mann celebrates 50 years of song writing. His songs are in numerous collections around the world. On Face to Face this week, we’ll be hearing Robin’s perspective on songs from his recent collection, and how they reveal the character of God.

  • Out and About

    Thanks to God for great weather to visit the McLaren Vale and Goolwa areas. The sun was shining on a day that two little boys were baptised into God’s family.

    Thank you to the people for the warm welcome and for listening me talk about how the last will be first and the first will be last. This phrase seems strange until we see what Jesus has done for us J

    Thanks for your support, for listening to Face to Face, and for playing Happyland and using our resources.

    Thanks and God bless


  • Out Of Control

    “We’ve all got areas of our life we’ve tried to control by willpower. You know how it goes, the more you think about not doing something, the more you do it”

    Have you ever struggled with self control? Y’know, choosing not to have that extra piece of chocolate or one more beer. Maybe it’s retail therapy, and the credit card is maxxed out again. On Face to Face this week, Noel Due shares that self control, actually comes from letting go!

  • Happy Birthday Face to Face!

    On the 18th September 1983, Face to Face first went to air on radio stations across Australia. After being called the Lutheran Hour since 1945, Australian script writers and presenters helped produce an Australian Lutheran outreach program. 100’s of people have been involved in this high quality production that continues to reach out to people in need of the good news of Jesus Christ. Face to Face contributes to reaching out to over 1,000,000 people and continues to bring a culturally relevant gospel to Australia and the world. Happy Birthday Face to Face!


  • Specific Ministry Pastors

    I had the honour of talking with 10 Specific Ministry Pastors at Australian Lutheran College today. They were from many parts of Australia and even New Zealand.

    Lutheran Media produces and shares many resources that are helpful to these pastors and congregations. I was also excited by the ideas and questions from the group.

    Keep up the good work. God bless.


  • A Warm Welcome At Aberfoyle Park

    My first visit to Our Saviour Lutheran Church at Aberfoyle Park in South Australia was memorable because of the warm welcome given to my family and I. Thank you for your welcome and the support for Lutheran Media. Your support is reaching people in need of real hope in Jesus Christ.
    I gave a message on Mission through Reconciliation and seeing conflict as an opportunity to bring the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ into our relationships. We also celebrated Father’s Day and my children made biscuits for me at kids church – Yum!
    Thanks for a great day! God bless

  • Happy Fathers Day!

    Join us this week to listen to Rev Rob Schubert offer insights and encouragement to parents, especially fathers.

    “My father seemed to know everything when I was little. As a teenager it’s amazing how much he’d forgotten! But then as an adult I realized he wasn’t bullet proof or out of touch. He was real. He had fears, failings and strengths just like me. I’m glad he was my dad.”

    Thankfully we have a father who will always love us – thanks God!
