Interview: Graeme Hutchinson
"I guess what its says as well Keith is I'm not unique, if you just sit down and think about how you can help people and what you might be able to do and go and share that, I'm sure a lot of people can find someone they can help or a group of people that they can become involved with even if its established organisations, and helping and feeding the poor or helping out." Graeme Hutchinson on helping others.
Guest performers: Elizabeth Rae
Elizabeth Rae discovered an almost effortless capacity to write songs when she was eleven years old. She began performing professionally at just thirteen years of age at beach resorts on the Coffs Coast. Now known for her strikingly pure, ethereal voice, Elizabeth’s poetic lyrics, interwoven with deeply moving melodies, create unforgettable performances that will leave you captivated.
‘Flowers’, her new studio album released in early 2018 is a bouquet of songs encompassing love, freedom and hope in a joyful way. The South Coast-based songstress and her band move blissfully between spirited indie-pop and soul-stirring ballads with intuition and ease.
Prisoner is an original song written and produced by Elizabeth Rae.
Keith's message: Finding faith
"My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favouritism. Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, ‘Here’s a good seat for you,’ but say to the poor man, ‘You stand there’ or ‘Sit on the floor by my feet,’ have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my dear brothers and sisters: has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him? But you have dishonoured the poor."
"This isn't salvation by works but it is what it means to be living in the saving faith of Christ, to live out that faith in practical expression in ways in deeds that makes sense to other people, to love everyone, not just a select chosen few..." Rev Keith Garner
