Word for the day from the
Rev Fred Harrison
Monday 1 June
This modern poster, shown above, merely reflects the words below. Both are based on the 23rd Psalm which was written 1000 BC or 3000 years ago. I pray you are blessed by it.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever

DPC verse for 2020
"So, my dear brothers and sisters,
be strong and immovable.
Always work enthusiastically for the Lord,
for you know that nothing you do
for the Lord is ever useless".
1 Corinthians chapter 15 verse 58 (NLT)
A verse for today
"God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins… We love because he first loved us".
1 John 4.9-10, 19
A verse to share
Zephaniah chapter 3 verse 17
"The Lord your God is with you,
The Mighty Warrior who saves,
he will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing".
Remember, God is with us, he is a mighty warrior - our salvation is taken care off.
BUT he delights in you and I AND he sings over us. Wow!
Who are we?
Our minister and his family
The Reverend Gordon Stevenson lives with his wife and four children, in Dunbar. Gordon was called to Dunbar in 2010. During this time, our church has seen God at work in many different ways; lives transformed, people called into full time ministry etc. We believe that we are a family learning and serving Jesus together so that we might discover God's vision for the church and share it with everyone.
Who is Rev Fred Harrison?
Gordon, our minister, is currently on leave so we would like to welcome Rev. Fred Harrison and his family to our church.

A note from Rev. Fred Harrison
I would like to introduce myself, Rev Fred Harrison, to you. That said a good number may remember my face from my time as a student minister when I had the honour of covering for Gordon on a number of occasions.
Back then my wife Joyce and I lived in Gorebridge but now stay here in Dunbar which gives me the chance to join you as Gordon's assistant.
We have a daughter and her husband along with their children here in Dunbar and another daughter, her husband and their daughter living in Bonnyrigg.
Recognising that "only God is good" , as the Lord was quick to point out, I don't believe in a blame culture, I get thing wrong frequently and can never remember folks names, but rather prefer to live in a culture of grace as demonstrated by our Father in Heaven.
I look forward to serving our Lord, your Minister Gordon, yourselves and those in the rest of our parish.
May God bless and keep you all.
