As the news begins to spread of my impending leave, I am humbled by the words and emotions people are sharing with me. It truly feels as though one chapter is closing, yet opening another looms on the horizon.
It is similar for the folks in the congregation. This is not the first time a pastor has moved on, and will not be the last, but change is change and not something we easily embrace (we are Lutherans, after all - haha).
What a blessing to have this time to share memories, stories, laughs, even tears as we prepare to transition. I am so grateful for the time I have had with these folks. They truly will always be in my heart!
