The last post

This will be my last post on the Worship Planning Page. After 8 years, I have decided that it’s time to move on and let someone else with some new ideas and enthusiasm to have a go. Rest assured that this website will continue to bring you quality worship resources from the LCA Commission on Worship!

Until my replacement is found, you will need to access resources from previous years – see the ‘Planning ahead’ widget over on the right hand side of the web page.

Here are a few new edited sermons for the rest of December:

sermon – phil 4 4-7 – year c – advent 3

sermon – luke 1 39-45- year c – advent 4

No new sermons for Christmas – see the Christmas Worship posts

sermon – coloss 3 12-17 – year c – christmas 1

A very blessed Christmas to you all and blessings on your service to the Lord!

  • Geraldine Avent

    Many thanks Trudie. I have used your site many times over the years. May God continue to bless you with your talents.

  • Dear Trudi. As the Last Post plays there is a moment for reflection. As chair of the LCA Commission on Worship, we have already expressed our deep appreciation of your contribution and your presence these last years. You have helped us take the Worship Planning Page from a beginning experiment to a much used and very useful mode of assisting God’s people in worship across the country and in New Zealand (and beyond).
    Thank you again.

    If we had a grandstand, I reckon you would get to have you name on it! (Sorry, been at the Test Cricket yesterday noticing the names of the grandstands around Adelaide Oval – Chappell, Bradman, Williams…….!)

    Advent Peace and Thanks.
