A touching moment in the Ordination Ceremony was shared by Rev. Dave Rowe (Crosspoint
) just before offering the Prayer of Enduemnet for his daughter and the other five. He displayed the laminated cherished note on the left which was doodled by Victoria as a young girl 20 years ago on the day he was Ordained in the Beulah Tabernacle. Then Dave displayed the note on the right which he will give to his daughter once the border opens. Only God knows all the intertwined generations of the Ordained through the branches of our Atlantic family tree in the district’s 132-year spiritual heritage. #spiritualfoundations
