I've been helping out at the recovery center with the Salvos for the Inglewood floods over the last few days and have been privileged to hear their stories and to be able to offer some financial support. I get to be kind and generous. Feels nice!

Water show art Water

Stories of Hope

Our bodies are 70% water. When people and rivers are dehydrated, disaster is not far away. When I run I need to drink before I am thirsty or I will get dehydrated. Our souls need regular refreshment so we can avoid becoming dry and grumpy.

Stories of Hope

Sometimes gift giving is very token and means very little. But at other times gift giving can touch our hearts and nurture love and friendship beautifully.

Fire show art Fire

Stories of Hope

Fire can cook bacon, refine metal and burn down a house. It is useful and powerful, but demands respect. Sometimes we get apathetic and lack the fire in the belly we need to get important things done. When was the last time you got fired up?

Stories of Hope

Bronwen Healy grew up in a fairly loving home, but found herself addicted to drugs and funding her habit through prostitution by the time she was 21. Her story of transformation and consequent capacity to help others is heart warming and inspiring.

Big Things show art Big Things

Stories of Hope

Australia has more big things like a giant lobster and a big pineapple than anywhere else in the world. We love to promote the good things our communities have to offer and, cheesy as it is, it's not a bad thing.

Wind show art Wind

Stories of Hope

A kite without a good breeze is about as useful to me as ballet shoes, but when the wind blows, it's a lot of fun. We don't know where the wind of the Spirit will blow next or where it comes from, but it sure can make life interesting!

Men's Walk and Talk show art Men's Walk and Talk

Stories of Hope

Mitch and Jeff have been mates for 30 years. But when Mitch experienced a tragedy and started drinking, Jeff realized having a beer with him was not helpful, so they started walking. They now walk and talk every Sunday and 35 other guys join them.

Church life at Caboolture Salvos the other Sunday was simply delightful. We are a group of committed people who serve the local community and try to love and support each other. It's not perfect, but it is kinda nice.

My lovely daughter Georgia has started jogging with me. This has been good for our relationship. But running early in the morning, watching the sunrise and sharing in a perfect coffee and some raisin toast the other week was top shelf!
