Catriona and Christina Make Personal Profession of Faith

We recently enjoyed a day we had been waiting for with eager anticipation for years.  We are celebrating God’s gracious working in our family life and to Him we are thankful!  On June 30 Catriona and Christina were interviewed by the Session and on August 18, 2013 they made their public profession of faith at our home church in Calgary – Woodgreen Presbyterian Church.

We are thankful for all the godly influences that Catriona and Christina have had in their lives – relatives who were an example and encouraged them in the faith, pastors and elders who have shepherded them, teachers who taught them who God is and what he has done and so many, many others who were salt and life to them.  God used these people in Toronto, Calgary and Uganda and so many places in between.  But most of all we praise our Triune God who has been working in them what no-one else could do.  We have seen his loving kindness, mercy and grace grow in them over the years.

We hope you will praise God with us!

After this Catriona and Christina had requested to sing this song - In Christ Alone:
 
In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.
 
In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev'ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.
 
There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
 
No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow'r of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.
