I'll Be Seeing You
As you may have heard, I'll be retiring the end of May. I have very much enjoyed my time as faith formation coordinator and being able to get to know so many of you better. It has been a wonderful experience and I'm so glad that I have had this opportunity.
If you read or heard my taped interview with Brian you'll know that I am leaving for a variety of reasons; not the least of which is I'm getting older and want to have time to spend with my grandson and family here, my daughter and brothers and families in Michigan, my sister in Texas, and my two puppies. I want to have some time to write and just relax. I've worked two or three jobs for several years and I'm looking forward to spending some time this summer reading some good books by the pool.
When I think back on my time in this position, I couldn't have asked for more helpful and friendly people to work with. All of you have made my life richer and working with you, especially in Sunday School and our two Vacation Bible Schools, are highlights for me.
I plan on continuing to meet with children in our Gather Round Program and serve on our outdoor space committee. While I will be working as a volunteer after May instead of on staff, I hope our paths will continue to cross.
Thank you for your kindness, your help, and your demonstrations of faith.
