Words for the day from the
Rev Fred Harrison
Tuesday 11 August
My daily reading for the 10th was from Isaiah 54 : 13 which says the following: -
"All your children will be taught by the Lord, and they will have much peace."
It goes on to suggest we should “never underestimate the power that comes when a parent pleads with God on behalf of a child. Who knows how many prayers are being answered right now because of the prayers of parents from 10 or 20 years ago”.
If your prayers have still to be fulfilled then continue to struggle with God for your children.

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
The Lord bless you and keep you,
The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you.
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
Numbers 6: 24 - 26
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 family, 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.
My wife Joyce and I live in Gorebridge. 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 things 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.
