‘I Work With FatherBob’ – Length 07:04

These days Mem River works for Father Bob Maguire helping Melbourne’s needy. That’s a long way from being a fighting street kid himself and heading for the edge of the underworld.

“True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.” 

– Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

“There are no coincidences in life. What person that wandered in and out of your life was there for some purpose, even if they caused you harm. Sometimes, it doesn’t make sense the short periods of time we get with people, or the outcomes from their choices. However, if you turn it over to God he promises that you will see the big picture in the hereafter. Nothing is too small to be a mistake.” 

– Shannon L.Alder – Author
