Perspectives by Rev. Norine Gullons


A goodbye to South Dundas

Sometimes pastoral ministry is a contradiction. It is all about building relationships and yet when the Spirit sends Pastors out to another call, we and you are asked to drop those very precious relationships and move on to hopefully good new ones. 

After living and working here for nine years, I do feel as if I am a part of this community of South Dundas. Many of you already know I will be moving on as of the end of June.

I am going to miss my very good and hard working South Dundas  ministerial colleagues.

I have sat on the Dundas County Food Bank Board and the Spiritual Care Advisory working group for Winchester District Memorial Hospital. 

The congregation of South Dundas Lutheran Community Church has been through many changes since I arrived here in 2005.

My message to you, the South Dundas Community, is to never stop dreaming and never stop believing in a higher being – God.  

Don’t stick with the status quo! Dream outside of the box  – whether that is for your faith community or for your family or your community at large. Be the best that you can be! 

As I quote a very famous man  – “ Love God  and Love one another.”

Laugh a lot  . . . God loves to hear you.

Cry when you have to.  And Pray at all times.

May God be with you and I until we meet again. 

As always, Pastor Norine
