Necessary Endings & Beautiful Beginnings ~ The Unabridged Version

As my husband, Mark and I prepare for new ministry assignments in Alberta, fifty years of calling Castlegar “home” and ten years of serving our beloved congregation at Kinnaird Church of God are drawing to a close.

“…I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one – I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.  “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.”
