Minister Winterbourne Harrison-Jones

Sunday, August 17, 2014

During Sunday Morning Worship Service

Minister Winterbourne is transiting back to Harvard,

We know that he must keep moving forward,
He has put in his time,

As he leave us behind,
 His life is not moving slow,
He must continue to grow.

Just join us to wish him well,
On his life's journey with so many stories to tell,
Forget the black ties because it's no formal affair,
It's an event to show how much we care,
I know that everyone will want to reminisce,
Just remember that he will surely be missed. 


We wish him God speed and tons of blessings too,

He will need it because God has given him some more work to do!
