My Friends,

As I end my journey with you, I am grateful for your kind words received through phone calls, emails, and notes. Cathi and I will treasure the beautiful Van Gogh “Sunflower” print I received on my last Sunday.

But more than anything, for nearly 20 months I would offer a benediction at the end of the worship service. The truth is that I am the one who week after week was on the receiving end of the blessing, serving with a wonderful staff and people like you who make Westminster Presbyterian Church a truly great church! 

Peace and grace,
Sunday, December 20
