Each year since I began serving as a presbytery executive, I’ve used my last newsletter article of the year to reflect on the past 12 months of our ministry together. While I have to admit it was a strange year, perhaps the strangest in my now 40+ years of ministry (now there’s a phrase that makes me feel old), I also have to admit that there was no shortage of highlights. In many ways, it was a very good year. I’ll list these in chronological order because I get stuck when I try to rank them in order of significance.
