Pastor's August Reflection

Dear Friends,

Grace to you from God our Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ.


I know that it is a bit late in the month, but for what will soon be obvious reasons, I chose to wait till now to post my August reflection. We have come to the end of our journey together and it is now time to say thank you and goodbye.

First, I want to thank Jim and the Grace council for their dedication and hard work but also and especially for their willingness to take the risk of inviting me to be your interim pastor. Their diligence, thoughtfulness, and love for this congregation came to fruition in an excellent Ministry Site Profile that will serve you well in the call process.


I especially want to thank Patty who although no longer a council member, serves as their recording secretary and can always be counted on to make sure everything gets done. She picked me up at the airport, gave me a tour of Bayonne and has ever since that first day always been there when I needed her. Her service to me and to this congregation have been invaluable.


And so, we get to the problem with thanking people in a public way. I had included others in an earlier draft but had to step back for fear of inevitably leaving someone out.  I will have to settle for a more general offer of my sincerest thanks to each and everyone of you who has made me feel welcome, to those of you who contribute in so many ways to the life of this congregation, and especially to those of you who have held me in prayer. Thank you!


Being an interim pastor has its unique challenges and being an interim pastor during a pandemic even more so. My mistakes have no doubt been many and I hope I can count on your forgiveness. I have learned so much during my time here that will serve me well in the future. I will always be grateful for the privilege of ministering for and with you over the last ten months.


I had hoped that by this point everything would be in final form regarding my next call, but unfortunately church wheels turn slowly sometimes. I look forward to sharing what is coming next for me with all of you in the very near future. In the meantime, I will be home in Indiana for a few weeks as the final details get ironed out. As you can imagine, not having everything signed, sealed, and delivered is the source of some anxiety. In your charity, please continue to pray for me. I promise my prayers for all of you.
