Farewell, Christian

Goodbye to our brother, Christian Stern.


On Monday 22 February our Lord took our colleague and friend Christian home to be with Him.

It was a peaceful passing, with Christian’s wife of 15 years Tanya, and his mum and dad, at his bedside.

Christian was born on 28.6.1980, so his passing was too soon for all of us who knew and loved him …

… yet not too soon for Christian to make an impact on hundreds of lives through his service as a teacher in Lutheran schools in Nhill, Brisbane and Hervey Bay, and in serving the poor through ALWS.

If you’d like to say farewell to Christian, you’re welcome to join the livestream of his funeral service from St James Lutheran CHurch in Hervey Bay on Monday 1 March at 9.30am (QLD time).

For now there are faith, hope, and love.
But of these three, the greatest is love.

1 Corinthians 13:13 (CEV)
