    In September’s newsletter entitled “Full of Change”, I

    wrote about transition. The changing seasons, the new HVAC

    system, and the laments of what could have been. Since last

    June, I have seen a lot of change, and since the September

    newsletter I have experienced a lot of personal change. William

    started preschool, I had an emergency appendectomy, and then

    I found out we were expecting our second child at the end of

    August. Not to mention it finally feels like spring! Hallelujah!

    One of the toughest transitions is yet to come – Pastor

    Lee’s retirement. I have to confess I have a mix of emotions. I

    am excited for Pastor Lee as he begins the next chapter of his

    story. Pastor Lee has taught me so much about what it means

    to be a “pastor” - to listen and care for individuals and the

    congregation. I truly believe that listening to him preach has

    made me a better preacher. I feel blessed to have worked with

    him. Yet, I am grieving the loss of a colleague who has offered

    so much to the larger church and this congregation, a colleague

    who’s passion, love, and insight will no longer be a part of First

    Lutheran.

    Despite my grief at what we are losing, I look to the

    future with hope. Just read these words from Jeremiah 29:11,

    “For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD,

    plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with

    hope.” We are all a mix of emotions – joy, excitement, sadness,

    and grief. Yet, God is at work in Pastor Lee’s life, just as God is

    at work in your life and in our congregation; working to bring

    about a future of hope.

    There will be a ‘farewell potluck’ for Pastor Lee on

    Sunday, April 28th at 11:45A.M. in the Fellowship Hall. Please

    come and bring a side. Church Council will provide the main

    dish. Let us share God’s hope with Pastor Lee, even as we

    anticipate the future.

    Grace and Peace,

    Pastor Chris
