Welcome to The Pastors’ Pen – an update for life at Southern Cross.
A week can be a long time, can’t it?
This week started with horrific events in a nearby town. A heavy week for those who knew those young lives so tragically affected.
James was able to spend time on Thursday with youth and young adults that had been affected to debrief and pray.
On Wednesday, I spent the day in Sydney as a member of the Northern Rivers Presbytery commission to meet with Bible college students to help them consider serving in our district in years to come.
Then this Friday, June 3, is our annual training for Vision Coordinators with Jono Andrews who is assisting us to lead with hearts resting in the deep love of God. Jono will stay for an additional day to provide training for ministers and elders of the Northern Rivers.
So as this long and complicated week comes to a close please consider praying for our nearby town as it mourns. Also pray for our region that in the years to come, young faithful leaders might come and join us in partnership to proclaim the deep love of God to this needy region.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Rom 5:8
