Awaken the Spirit: Interview with Author Jay Jeffries

Awaken the Spirit is both intriguing and exciting. It skillfully fuses Sacred Texts (from the Bible), plus strong and evocative imagery, with reflection and meditation and the insights of personal experience. In one way this is a ‘safe’ book – it is accessible for just about anyone, whatever their spiritual path. It is exploratory and not assertive. In another way this is a risky book – it invites not only our interest but also our response. It connects us to our spiritual selves and our spiritual selves to a God who reveals in the world around and in the stories and discoveries of godly people through history and now, and most specifically to the life and teaching of Jesus and his followers.

We Tell Stories

We Tell Stories is just one of 10 performance poems on the Album Welcome Home. Genre-bending and ground breaking, this album is like nothing you have encountered before. Call it intimate, acoustic-driven, folk-rock poetry; or perhaps a mash up of Passenger, Sigur Ros and Daughter sitting beneath passionately delivered spoken word. Whatever you call it, you need to listen to truly ‘get it’, and once you have you will want more.

IRIS

Iris is one of my favourite Australian bands, a Melbourne based indie 5 piece. Fronted by key songwriter Richelle Boer, IRIS artfully resists being boxed into a category, flowing with ease between genres.

Friday Arts Day with Joel McKerrow

‘In a time when politics, theology, and other important avenues of human intercourse suffer from a flatness of prose and a vacuum of meaning,
Joel walks on stage just when we need him,
sounding off with all the craft of a first-rate poet and all the verve of a first-rate performer.’
Joel McKerrow

Friday Arts Day: with Esther Oakley

God is always challenging me to see people and situations through his eyes, not my eyes of judgement and insecurity.

He loves me so completely that I am free to love others completely.

We are carriers of light and hope everyday. We don’t have to be perfect, just willing. Esther Oakley
