This is a farewell. This is a time to recognize not only loss, but connection. I thank you for this connection I’ve had in Grand Island.
You have been grace-filled when my family was taken away to the hospital. You have been faithful when you stepped out into the unknown and challenged your churches to be better. You have been joyful over the many meals and conversations we’ve had. I thank you.
You have been formative in my ministry and as I move on, you all will be in my heart. As we part ways, I have no doubt that God is and will still be working amongst you as the parish grows and changes with new leadership, members, and ministries. May we each be open to the movings of the One who shows us the Way.
