This Sunday’s Service – St. Theresa of Smyllum Park

October 22 Service at 10:30 AM

Rev. Julie Lombard, Minister

Theresa Tolmie-McGrane was six years old when she arrived at the Smyllum Park Orphanage, Lanark, Scotland in the 1970’s. The sexual abuse began at age eight. By age 17 she escaped the horrors of abuse when she left the home to study at the University of Glasgow. She’s grown up to become a courageous psychologist in Norway. Today, she helps people tackle their own brokenness. As she looks back at her childhood, a childhood many did not survive, we consider the determination it took to face her fears. What does this kind of endurance look like?

Music: Singing Group sings for this service. Helen Brandt, Director and Judy Putnam at the piano.
