Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Blessing to all this Christmas and Advent season. It is a pleasure serving the presbytery of Giddings-Lovejoy. As we enter 2019, I have been reflecting on what it means to be your permanent presbytery leader. First, it is an honor to serve in this role. It means Marilyn and I are putting a stake in the ground and make St. Louis county our home. We plan to purchase a house in 2019. This will be the first home for us together. Since being married for 14 years, Marilyn and I have lived in five different cities. We’re ready to settle down!
I will write an extensive blog in January outlining plans and ideas for 2019. For now, I just want to say thank you. Serving in Giddings-Lovejoy has been life changing for me. It is a joy to pour my life and energy into the work of this ministry. I have met so many of you at your church, presbytery gatherings, or various events. My mind is filled with smiling faces, generous hugs and handshakes, and kind words. Truly being your presbytery leader is a gift exchange.
Again, I say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Blessings as we go forward together into the New Year.
