Best of 2013: Forged with flames

16 February 2014 Wesley Impact! TV

This week on Wesley Impact! TV we meet author, Ann Fogarty, and the Rev Dr Keith Garner explores the book of Elijah.

Ann’s story
It’s been 30 years since the Ash Wednesday bushfires hit: one of Australia’s worst natural disasters that claimed the lives of 75 people and injured hundreds more. Ann Fogarty was a victim of the fires, receiving burns to 85 per cent of her body when she was hit by a fireball at her home in rural Victoria. Ann’s extraordinary journey of survival is documented in her book, Forged with flames: A true story of courage and survival. 

Wesley Mission story—Lifeline
Lifeline has been operating for 50 years and Andrew Downie is one of Lifeline’s hardworking, dedicated volunteers. Andrew is blind and has also helped develop technical systems for Lifeline that enable people who are sight impaired participate as volunteers. This year he was awarded the Order of Australia medal for 30 years of service to Lifeline. 

Keith's reflection
The Rev Dr Keith Garner leads this week’s sermon on Elijah in the fifth of a six week series looking at the prophets of the Old Testament.
