Lutheran Women of Western Australia

God created the Rose in the likeness of Women
The Flower represents Beauty
The Stem represents Strength
The Petals are soft as skin
The Fragrance Pure and Sweet
The Leaves represents Arms Outstretched
Always loving, always giving
So, each time you look at a Rose remember
God Made You So Very Special

Getting ready – suitable clothing, comfortable shoes, food, road maps, making sure we have all we need for the journey. Getting ready for what we may encounter.

Do we have our lamps trimmed and burning and ready with extra oil to light the way, always prepared no matter what day or hour he arrives?

Ballarat

Our pastor, Adrian Kramer, has accepted a call to serve in Canada. The Ballarat congregation gave him and his family a farewell barbecue on Sunday 27 February. They have been with us for seven years and Pastor Adrian has been LWV Spiritual Advisor for that time. We thank him for his work with our congregation and wish him and the family many blessings as they begin their new life in Canada.
