Announcement of Resignation

Yesterday I read my resignation letter to the congregation where I have been serving for the last five years. A number of people were very sad, the gentleman I asked to close the service in prayer couldn't because he was crying (I took over when he had to stop in the middle of his prayer) but it seemed as though all were happy for the family and I as we pursue new things. Some asked us to stay, others told us we'd be great wherever we went and others just hugged us. I'm not sure what's going to happen from here. I could remain at the Church for 3 weeks or 3 months, we'll see.

The best thing is that this didn't end on a negative note. I am at peace with everyone in the congregation and so, that's a very good thing. If you would, please pray that I would end up where I can glorify God the most. Thank you.


  1. wow...i bet that was really hard!! i'll be praying for you and your family in these next steps!

  2. Dude, what's up? Does this have anything to do with the impending adoption?

    Do you have any plans?

  3. pap,
    Thanks, it was tough for most everyone.

    I've been thinking about this for a while and there are a number of factors that influenced my decision. Again, I'm just glad it was a positive versus a negative thing.
