I have loved my engagement with the students, staff and families. How much richer I am because of these interactions. And what lasting memories of have! So thank you.
On Monday night we gathered in St Pauls Cathedral for our Carols Service. It was a lovely service as the various choirs sang beautifully to tell the story of the coming of Jesus. This is indeed an amazing story that speaks of the love of God who came to Earth in the form of a helpless babe. God became vulnerable to express the depth of his love.
In these troubled days, we need to once again hear the simple message of Jesus to offer grace, love and forgiveness. This is the message I have been privileged to share with the Carey community.
I thank you for making my time at Carey so fulfilling. I leave with immense gratitude that God gave me the opportunity to serve you and him here. I close with this benediction…
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind always be at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand
Grace and peace, and savour the special moments, for they quickly pass.
