As the scripture says For everything there is a season ….
For Rev Liz it is time for a new adventure. After all, she has put up with us for three years and let’s face it - we are hard work!!!! She is ready to retire.
You know the thing about retirement is that you never get a day off!
On November 26th Knox said Good Bye to our beloved minister of 3 years Rev. Liz Bowyer.
Morning Worship was a De-covenanting Service with Rev Liz presenting the congregation with a number of symbols for our continued work. Special guest musician Derry Byrne trumpeted with each and every hymn in addition to a spell binding solo. The choir totally out did themselves with a very beautiful and moving arrangement of “Standing on Holy Ground” – a request from Liz. The congregation sang lustily - another request by Liz - actually that request was weekly! Liz was thanked and blessed.
A farewell luncheon followed with conversation, storytelling, good natured jokes, a skit, an original song performance by the choir and gift presentations. Just look at the photos and you can see that a very good time was had by all and because it is knox – of course there was CAKE!
Remembering how special you made all of us feel - thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work, love and support of our Knox family.
Wishing you a happy exciting and wonderful retirement. Peace be with you.
We are pleased to share some photos of the clecbration.
