We were reminded today of the beauty and importance of the Psalms. “The Psalms were the songs of Jesus” we were reminded.
We looked at Psalm 29 and the wonderful, vibrant and powerful description of the voice of God and we were encouraged not to think of the Psalms as dreary, irrelevant, Old Testament stuff. Rather we should celebrate them and hear the voice of God whisper, speak, shout and thunder through them.
It was with profound thanks tinged with sadness that we said farewell to Stephen, Cathy and their three kids today. They have been with us for nearly seven wonderful years and in that time they have touched countless lives and made a permanent mark on the life of St. Columba’s.
Stephen, Cathy, Ruby, Patrick and Scott have become an integral part of our lives and not just on a Sunday morning or through various meetings and organisations but also through their wonderful pastoral ministry and social visits. We have been incredibly blessed by their ministry and are all the richer for it.
We wish Stephen all God’s blessings as he embarks on his new calling as the UK and Ireland mission director for SAMS.
