The Pastors’ Post – 11th April

Welcome to the Pastors post – an update for life at Southern Cross.

A special Pastors Post for our lovely Lyn.

As many of you may have known, Lyn has been battling some health troubles over the last couple of months. Firstly an unexpected broken hip but more recently and more seriously, some heart issues.

Initially it seemed Lyn may be able to monitor the heart issues with good health and lowered stress. More recent tests have revealed Lyn will require treatment in May.

Therefore, it is with profound sadness and yet abundant joy that I announce Lyn’s retirement from our staff team. Lyn will have her last Sunday as the kid’s coordinator on Sunday the 18th of April.

The following Sunday the 25th of April, you the church family, are invited to have lunch with Lyn from midday at Sam Trimble Oval at Bexhill.

Can I encourage you to consider joining us, bring a picnic rug and chair and byo picnic as we have some more extended time to reflect on Lyn’s tremendous impact in the life of our children and families at Southern Cross.

Finally, Leadership Team has been exploring a contingency for the Kids Ministry role until the end of 2021 and hope to communicate that appointment to the church family on Sunday the 25th of April. 

We are in conversation with a long term appointment to begin in the role in January 2022. We will keep the church family updated regrading that role.

How would you describe Lyn?  Can I encourage you to think about it? And join us for ‘Lunch with Lyn’ at midday Sunday 25th of April at Bexhill.

But as you contemplate a part of God’s word that captures Lyn, it’s hard to go past the final part of Proverbs 31

25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;

    she can laugh at the days to come.

26 She speaks with wisdom,

    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

27 She watches over the affairs of her household

    and does not eat the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise and call her blessed;

    her husband also, and he praises her:

29 “Many women do noble things,

    but you surpass them all.”

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;

    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

31 Honour her for all that her hands have done,

    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

I’m sure Ken, Lyn’s husband, would agree:

“Many women do noble things,

                 but you surpass them all.”

And I am sure you could all agree:

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;

                but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Let us praise and give thanks for our most lovely Lyn who is always so quick to give glory and all praise to her loving Heavenly Father.

Thanks for tuning into the Pastors Post.
