Board Week

Last week, as Moderator I attended several of the Boards of our Presbyterian Church – the Boards of Mission Overseas, Mission in Ireland, Social Witness and the General Board – I was chairing the latter.  Through my attendance I have gained a insight into the wider work of our church – two new missionary couples were received; I presented retirement gifts to one Irish Mission Worker and one deaconess.

At the weekend I was with Rev Ian McNie in Trinity Ballymoney where once again we “brought in the harvest”.

This week I took Monday off to tidy my study and then went back to work for a rest!!

On Tuesday Karen and I were delighted to be a part of the Launch of the World Development Appeal.  Look out for the video which accompanies this year’s material. It include a dancing Moderator!  Whatever next?

Tomorrow (Thursday) I shall be conducting a time of study and prayer for the several youth workers who are employed in PCI congregations.  They are upwards of 30 of these youth workers.
