The value of life

24 August 2014 Wesley Impact! TV

This week on Wesley Impact! TV we meet inspiring mother, Hannah Boland, and the Rev Dr Keith Garner explores Matthew 16.   

Hannah's story
Hannah Boland and her husband were heart broken when they found out the child she was bearing was critically ill and would not survive. Despite medical advice, Hannah and her husband decided not to terminate the baby, much to the shock of many. In her book, 47 hours with a prince: God's grace through devastating circumstances, Hannah has documented the precious although short time they were able to spend with their son and the grief that followed. Hannah shares with the Rev Dr Keith Garner the astounding way that God carried her through this difficult time.

Wesley Mission storyWesley Congregational Life
Wesley Mission offers pastoral care to people in the community who need anything from spiritual guidance to a friendly ear to listen. We meet Andrew Chin, one of our inspiring pastors, who encourages young congregation members to honour and serve God. We also talk to Gail Kilby, one of Wesley Mission's Chaplains who provides emotional and spiritual support to older people in the community through Wesley Help at Home Services.

Keith's reflection
The Rev Dr Keith Garner continues exploring the book of Matthew, this time focussing on chapter 16. We reflect on the way Jesus Christ goes to great lengths to make clear to the disciples that there is a cost to following Him. We consider what this call to discipleship means to us today. 

Guest performers
Today we welcome gifted Australian performer Ann-Maree Keefe to the Wesley Impact! TV stage. Ann-Maree is an acclaimed song writer, writing prolifically over the years to amass a large body of work including her solo material, worship songs for the wider church and even kids songs.
