On Sunday 29 April we celebrated the journey we have shared with Rev Cathie Lambert in her ministry with our congregations and community at Margaret River and Augusta. It was a wonderful time of reflection, storytelling, laughter and some tears.
There was quite a Wizard of Oz theme through the whole morning, one of Cathie’s favourite movies, and a wonderful theme of journeying. For the combined service the church was decorated with a yellow brick road running down the centre of the aisle. During our intercessory prayers we were invited to place footsteps along the road, an opportunity to name the many things and people we would like to give thanks for. We also shared a photographic reflection of some of the highlights of Cathie’s ministry over the last 7 years.
After the service we shared a morning tea, and Cathie was given a Wizard of Oz themed gift to see her on her next adventure in life.
Thank you Cathie for the many gifts you have shared with us. We wish you and your family much love and blessings on the next steps of your journey.
