PASTOR BILL’S BYTES
“So This Is Goodbye?”
It hardly seems possible. I’m writing my final column as your Pastor. Tears flow whenever I have to say “goodbye” to someone. I’m not doing that here and now, because this is not goodbye. In Jesus Christ, we have been united with him and with one another in his death and his resurrection, so we are always joined in Christ.
Sheri and I have not moved far. Some of you have already been in our home in Marion, and our doors are always open to you. We have been joined in worship and in service, and we will occasionally come to worship or to serve with you. We have been joined in prayer, and we will always be praying for you and for your new pastoral leadership. We will always be your friends. Only one thing has changed. Though I will no longer be your pastor after June 30, I will always be your friend and your intercessor.
As you have blessed me, comforted me, worshiped with me, and served with me, I bless you now. I commend you to the unconditional love and the mercies of God that are new every morning.
Grace to you and peace.
Your servant for the sake of Jesus,
