THANK YOU! From my heart, I thank all of you who have offered expressions of love and sympathy following the death of my brother, and those who have offered heart-felt goodbyes during the recent days. I am grateful for your love and support, and will welcome your prayers as I move on. I will keep all
of you in my prayers, and especially this congregation,
as you continue to discern God's will.
Blessings and peace, Pastor Rachel
