Dear Second B Family,

 Thank you so very much for the lovely send-off last Sunday as I slip into retirement after 19 years on Second B’s pastoral staff. The worship services on Sunday morning were so deeply meaningful and gave me a chance to express my gratitude to you for your faithful support and service to God through the years.
Sunday evening’s “reception” was delightful, hilarious, and deeply meaningful, as you gave us all a chance to reflect on the countless ways God has blessed us as a church family over the past six decades. I was deeply honored and stunned by your kindness and generosity. Your gifts were perfectly chosen and touched me deeply.
We are so greatly blessed by our strong pastoral team and support staff, in addition to our superb Vision Leadership Team and lay leaders. Jake Maxwell is already leading us into a visionary, creative, spiritual and Christ-centered future, and I am so grateful God has brought Jake, Allison, and Eva to be part of our growing family.
God is so good, and Paul and I will look forward to joining you in the pew down the road. Thank you for the blessing of serving as your pastor.

The Desert Willow tree was donated in Stephanie's honor. It is on the east side of the columbarium.
