Walking with God

21 September 2014 Wesley Impact! TV

This week on Wesley Impact! TV we catch up with Ken Duncan and the Rev Dr Keith Garner explores Philippians.

Ken's story
Landscape photographer Ken Duncan tells us about his work with the Ikuntji indigenous community in central Australia. In particular, he explains his Walk a While initiative, which aims to provide youth with equipment and skills to tell their stories and make a living through the creative arts. Ken also introduces us to Help raise the Cross, a dream initiated by three indigenous leaders to construct a 20 metre high cross on Memory Mountain, to proclaim Jesus’ power over Australia’s spiritual strongholds.

Wesley Mission story—Wesley Family Centre
Today we visit Wesley Family Centre, Westlakes, to see how support services such as playgroups, parenting programs, mums and bubs groups, and one on one home visiting are helping families in the community. We meet Erin and hear how this Wesley Family Centre has helped her and her young daughter face challenges and develop confidence and happiness as a family.

Keith's reflection
The Rev Dr Keith Garner begins an exploration of Paul’s letter to the Philippians looking at what Paul meant when we wrote “to live is Christ and to die is gain” in chapter 1. We see that this statement speaks to us about the values that shape our lives now which Paul says should be defined by the sacrificial love of Christ.

Guest performers
Today we are delighted to hear a song beautifully written and performed by Christie Jacobs, which explores the majesty of God’s work and character. We’re also joined by worship leader Ryan Day, speaker and worship leader whose mission themed worship song We are Ready prays for revival and the work of God’s Holy Spirit.
