Lighthouses and Life

February 5th, 2016|G'day From Steve|

There’s an old saying.. "A ship in the harbour is safe.. but that is not what ships are built for". Hundreds of tourists turn up every day to stand on the eastern most point of Australia at Cape Byron and visit the magnificent lighthouse that has stood the test of time since 1901. Every day [...]

Songs for Australia

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6 The writer of the book of Hebrews tells us it is impossible to please God without faith. God loves to see faith in action, [...]

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.– Proverbs 27:17 Meet two of my favourite country guitar playing cowboy mates from the Outback. Jimmy Friday and Lenny Nelson.

Keep the Faith

October 28th, 2015|G'day From Steve|

Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching [...]

Rivergums and Righteousness

October 23rd, 2015|G'day From Steve|

People are often unreasonable and self centred. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. [...]
