An Introduction

3 July
My ministry has been expanded and I am taking on responsibility for preaching and pastoral care at St Stephen’s, Hamilton South.
Today was my first service with them and I used two texts other than the lectionary – Deut 26:1–11 & Matt 4: 12–17.
The theme was “Dislocation”, the idea coming from R McAfee Brown’s Creative Dislocation: Movements of Grace.
For me I am responding to the change, and for St Stephen’s congregation they farewelled a much loved minister, Shirley, who died in May, and now face a different future.
