Gordon Stenning Celebration

Gorden Stenning
Gordon Stenning's 50th anniversary as an ordained deacon was celebrated by parishioners and friends of Saint Paul's at a luncheon reception following today's 10 o'clock service. As a part of the festivities all in attendance participated in a group reading of a commemorative poem penned for this noteworthy milestone in the life of the "Pastor of Portsmouth" by Joy and Paul Twelves. All of us at Saint Paul's share in our appreciation of Gordon's role in our church community. And all of us share as well in our appreciation of Shirley Sylvia's return from "retirement" to stage the luncheon.
