David Devenish visit
David preached an excellent message on ‘the blessing of being a servant’ from Luke 12:35-40. He showed from this parable how Jesus is pleased with serving and servanthood, and how the servants in the parable are commended for their availability to serve rather than their achievements. He also showed how so often our modern, Western Christianity can become consumer driven rather than following the example of Jesus who was a true servant leader.
We also celebrated Al & Jane being involved in full time ministry here at DCC for 25 years. Al was completely unaware of all the plans people had made for this – even David Devenish had been involved in the plans without Al knowing! However Al & Jane would both like to express their thanks and appreciation to everyone in the church for all their love and support over the years and they look forward being involved for a bit longer yet!
