Our Christian faith is formed by the Easter Surprise. Christ's resurrection was a surprise for the world. St. Paul's is once again facing a change of pastors. This is occurring in the midst of celebrating the new covenant creation found in the resurrection. However, because of the resurrection of our Lord we are not afraid but embrace the future without fear.
St. Paul's is called to be the church which Christ created and will continue to lead through the Holy Spirit. I know that when we follow Jesus together, hearts will be filled, neighbors will be loved and all who call out will be transformed.
...because of the resurrection of our Lord we are not afraid but embrace the future without fear.
Victoria and I will be beginning the next phase of our lives with part of our hearts left at St. Paul's and we cannot thank you enough for your love, support, and encouragement. We part ways as the family of God, but no goodbyes, just as our clown friends in the circus say, "See you Down the Road."
May God continue to bless and fill you with His Grace,
Pastor Vernon and Victoria
