I would like to let you know that the time has come for David and me to move on and we will move out of the area in early April. I am taking early retirement and Sunday 4th of April, Easter Sunday, will be my last working day in the parish.
It has been a privilege to serve God as minister of Acharacle and Ardnamurchan Parishes. Since the beginning of March 2012, my ordination and induction, these past nine years in ministry have been endlessly interesting, challenging, rewarding and so much more. I thank God and you for the opportunities I’ve had to practice what I’ve been led to preach.
These may be challenging times but as Jeremiah 29:11 tells us’ ‘For surely I have plans for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.’ God has plans for these parishes and for God’s church as a whole.
As you follow Jesus, in the strength of the Spirit, may you be blessed by the knowledge that God plans to always be with you - and I pray that you plan to always be with God.
