Farewell Sermon

Today was my last day as the Sr. Minister of the Church where I have been serving for over the last five years. It was an emotion-charged day. A few people offered mini-speeches of remembrances and gratitude for me and still others were teary-eyed and encouraging. In addition to a nice banquet in honor of my family, another emotion-filled event was baptizing a young boy from within the congregation. I had his mom and dad make vows to him; it was a great thing to witness. Today has been an emotionally-wearing day but also a very good day. I really couldn’t have asked for it to end any other way. Below is the sermon I offered. Give it a read as it’s not that long. It’s titled “Farewell Sermon”. (Click on the first page below and the message will open in a pop-out window.)
