This letter is hard to write. After nine years of ministry with you, it is time for a transition. Beverly and I will be moving at the end of December. Our last service with you will be the Christmas Eve service. I am in the process of accepting another call. When that is finalized in a couple of weeks I will let you know where. Our house goes on the market this week.
This time between now and the end of the year will be a time of tearful goodbyes and a time to celebrate what we have accomplished together. We have accomplished much.
I know there will be many questions regarding next steps. The presbytery will guide you and I will do everything I can to make this transition as smooth and gracious as possible.
Thank you for your ministry to us.
