Hope in the face of tragedy
This week on Wesley Impact! TV we talk to Louisa Hope, Sydney Lindt Café siege survivor. Our band director Craig Gower and Deb Ezzy-Walton perform the song ‘Because He Lives’.
We look at Taylor’s story, a young person who came into contact with Wesley Mission through our Wesley Aunties & Uncles program. It is a program that supports young people who need occasional or weekend care and mentoring.
Special guest: Louisa HopeLess than two years ago Louisa walked into the Lindt Café to meet her mother for a coffee. As they were having their drinks, a gunman walked in and from that point on Louisa life would never be the same.
Since then, Louisa has forgiven the gunman and started a foundation called Louisa Hope Nursing fund for nurses at Prince of Wales hospital. The fund has raised over $100,000 in the past year.
Guest performer: Craig Gower and Deb Ezzy-Walton
We welcome Craig Gower and Deb Ezzy-Walton from the Wesley Impact band to inspire us with ‘Because He Lives’.
Keith’s message: Rise above the crowd
Rev Keith Garner explores the story of a relatively wealthy person, Zacchaeus, who climbed a tree so that he might rise above the crowd to see Jesus. Salvation is never just a personal matter. When Zacchaeus had his change of heart, Jesus announced salvation had come to Zacchaeus’ house. Everyone was touched by what had happened.
