Dr. Stephen Lennox is the unanimous choice of the Kingswood Presidential Search Committee as the next President of Kingswood. The Board of Trustees will vote on the recommendation on March 27th. Read more about Dr. Lennox on the Kingswood website.
He and his wife Eileen visited here this past week and Gloria and I were honoured to host them for dinner last Tuesday. We look with keen anticipation to the future of Kingswood as the university enters a new chapter of ministry.
This week both Peter and I were “roadrunning” as pastoral recalls, extended call reviews and related matters are under review during this season. Peter visited with Lower Hainesville LBA and Scott Lewis; Monticello LBA and Jason Rooney; Fort Fairfield LBA and Jamin Melanson; Easton LBA and Jason Coffman.
I was on a Southern NS swing and visited with Dale Robertson; Brazil Lake LBA and Amy Corey; David Hockley; Woods Harbour LBA and Rod Guptill; Yarmouth LBA and John Symonds and a pastoral installation for Brad Eisan at Ingomar yesterday morning. It is always a privilege to visit with the tribal leaders.
As just mentioned, I was in Ingomar yesterday morning to install the new pastor Brad Eisan and share in a potluck dinner. There were 40+ present in the service and many unsolicited positive comments came my way concerning the first few months of Brad’s service there.
I was honoured on Thursday to make remarks and represent our district at the home going service for Pauline Fancy – a wonderful lady who fought a good fight, kept the faith, finished her course and has been promoted to glory. The legacy of Jack and Pauline continues through a daughter, son and grandson in pastoral ministry and a granddaughter serving as a missionary in Eastern Europe.
Cornerstone has embarked on a multi-tiered project that will use a combination of energy saving initiatives and solar energy production. This will result in a decreased reliance on fossil fuels, a reduced carbon footprint and a fifty percent savings in energy costs. If your church might be interested in this, Denn will gladly have a discussion with you.
Amy Corey, pastor at Brazil Lake is on a two-month medical leave of absence effective immediately. Thanks for remembering her and the church in prayer during these days.
