Welcome to Postcard Radio

Many people might think of Australia as a Christian nation, but the reality is that relatively few Aussies consider themselves passionate followers of Jesus and his ways. We like it when Jesus tells us to love those who are close to us, but we aren’t as impressed when he tells us to love our enemies in the same way. We like it when Jesus calls for the poor to be fed but don’t like when he asks us to pay for it.

What is A Big Year?

A Rose by any other name . . .
By Randy Edwards

As a gardener I am a complete failure. My wife would be the first to affirm such an assessment.

“To Be” or “Not to Be”: That is the Kingdom Question!
By Randy Edwards

What does it mean to be a good citizen of a country? In recent years the arrival of immigrants from overseas has put pressure on 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation Australians to speak of what it means to be a “true blue Aussie.” Are they ones who take up citizenship?
