Eucharistic Convention

6 April 2005

Greetings to all who attended the Eucharistic Convention in Auckland recently. Thanks for making me feel so welcome and for the way you received my songs. Didn't we have a great time? Thank you John for the invitation. My thoughts and prayers go out to you who shared something of your life with me. I hope the sentiment of my songs will be an inspiration and comfort in the days ahead.

I have been amazed with all the coverage the death of Pope John Paul is receiving in the media. Seeing the close ups on faces of mourners is a prayer in itself. The Pope is speaking powerfully in his death. As I sang at the Convention:

We are here in the presence of Our God.

We are here in the presence of Our God

And together we pray eternal rest for Pope John Paul.

We are here in the presence of Our God
