My Dear Friends
This will be my last letter to you as I reach the end of my time as the 'locum' Minister.
My unreserved joy that the congregation of Dreghorn and Springside will soon have their own minister is tempered by my personal regret at leaving you.
I will leave with a lasting memory of two communities who do look after everyone and an abiding memory of a church congregation whose members do care for one another.
I have tried to be the church minister for the whole parish and in that regard I do thank everyone who made me welcome when I visited them. I only hope and pray that I was able to bring the comfort and strength of the gospel into your lives and homes.
I have been so excited about the young people in the parish. I have enjoyed wonderful times in the two primary schools of Dreghorn and Springside, not forgetting the pre-5 Nursery. I do thank the staff for receiving me in such a kind way. While the Young Church in the congregation has simply been terrific. Young ones keep up the good work, you are super.
Now as the congregation within the communities moves forward may I ask God's blessing for the new minister, Rev Jamie Milliken. I am sure Jamie will be a source of rich blessing for you all.
My friends, go forward with the courage of Jesus in your steps and the hope of the Lord in your hearts.
Let Jesus lead you and inspire you. Show forth the Lord.
God bless you all in your homes and families.
God bless you.
