On Sunday 6 September, St Columba’s celebrated 10 years of Revd Liz Blair’s ministry. The morning service was briefly interrupted by our Church Secretary, Shirley, who marked the occasion with a short speech and the presentation of flowers. Afterwards, a beautifully iced cake was cut, and a card was given, signed by the whole congregation.
The whole event was a lovely surprise for Liz, who suspected nothing. She reflected on the ups and downs of the last decade and on her first visit to the church when preaching with a view, when she felt a strong calling to St Columba’s. Throughout it all, God had guided, taught and supported her, and we had grown spiritually as church. Liz also paid thanks to her husband, Dave, for his prayers and support.
