The choir sang a delightful ministry of music, entitled “In The Stillness Of The Morning”. The guest speaker was Mark Sturman, who will soon be a Licensed Lay Worshipper. Mark was raised in Seagrave and attended the Church as a child, with his parents Ken and Eleanor. He spoke of his experiences in the Dominican, learning the culture and teaching English, he was the outsider, relating it to how difficult it must have been for Christians in Jesus’ time to share the word. Alicia Sturman read a scripture, bringing the story to life, with emphasis and enthusiasm.
