Doug was a beacon of light in a dark time when we had wounds caused in the church community and his quiet father figure steadfastness helped to realise that not all people are similar. When we used to get to church (those early days of Hillsong Cape Town) I would look at which entrance he would be as I needed to take in his warmth and care… One Christmas service in the CTICC we were there and I didn’t see him. I worried about where he was. We moved onto an Afrikaans church for our kids’ sake, but still visited Hillsong, always looking for Doug at an entrance, never knowing he was Lucinda’s father. I thank the Lord for Doug, who was there for us without knowing it, therefore I wanted to honour him in this way. Thank you for the oppertunity of this platform. God bless you 🤗
