Coralee Rough on being a Christian corporate executive 
Today we meet Wesley Strategic Growth Services Director Coralee Rough, and hear how her background in law and property has led her to her current vital role at Wesley Mission. She shares that as a Christian in the corporate executive world, spreading God's love and staying true to Christian values were her biggest challenges. In her later work, Coralee has been dedicated to preventing homelessness and helping people to rebuild their lives. As owning a home becomes more difficult with rising property prices, Coralee says the wraparound services Wesley Mission provides to care for the whole person are important in helping people to move forward towards independence. She also talks about her journey of Christian faith, in which she has trusted God's guidance, and her desire to acknowledge Him in all areas of her life.

Guest performer
Today we hear from Jordan Worner, a young Australian singer/songwriter. He is passionate about leading people into God's presence through music, and has had opportunity to do so all over the world.

Keith's reflection
Today, as the Rev Dr Keith Garner explores Psalm 27, we learn that it speaks of the spectrum of human experience, from the rapture of a mountaintop to the shadows of a valley. Even when he was being pursued by enemies, David was able to have confidence because of the stability he had as he abided in Christ. David's testimony helps us to know that when we cry out to God, we can be strong as we wait for his certain help and presence.
