Margie Roux and Lew Slade

St Francis United Church’s Margie Roux and Lew Slade were recently ordained at St Mary’s Cathedral in PE as Deacons by Bishop Bethlehem, Bishop of the Diocese of Port Elizabeth along with 9 other new Deacons.

At the service Archdeacon Mark Derry said need to be beacons of hope in a sea of uncertainty – to stand out as Joshua had. Using Joshua 24:13-15 Mark spoke of the deacons owing everything to God, serving him with faithfulness, getting rid of the old stuff and replacing it with the Word of God and making the choice between the gods of the land and/the true God – each day and for life.
