About our Transition Ministers

January 7, 2018

During the interim period before our permanent Minister begins at Woodcliff in July, our church has the joy of having services lead by three guest ministers in addition to Rev. Debbie Stockdale.

When Rev. Grant Dawson is asked about his accomplishments, he instead talks about the church community taking the time to make thoughtful decisions. He emphasizes the pastoral side of his role, saying that you can’t preach if you are not in touch with people, their hopes, fears and frustrations. He has encouraged worshippers to be a vibrant community, growing in worship, church structure, and theology. Grant is an accomplished linguist, fluent in Mandarin, and at least conversant in French, Spanish, German, Russian, Greek, Hebrew and is now learning Italian for his post retirement trip.  He and his wife, Dorothy, have travelled and look forward to Italy. He also loves computers. And after retirement? Grant isn’t sure. After a couple of months he will look at options, perhaps teaching or writing. He will continue on the Board of the Oi Kwan Foundation for Calgary Presbytery. When asked about frustrations Grant iterates that he is very positive.

There are no problems, just situations (Tolle).
