Ordination Day Jan. 28, 2012

Thank you just doesn’t reach to the core of what I want to tell each and every one of you.  My Ordination was perfect. That day could not have been a success if it hadn’t been for each of the members of P.L.U.M. There were so many volunteers that worked very hard to make the service absolutely beautiful and meaningful.

Maybe you were unable to “do” anything for the service - but you being there was such a gift to me. Your support and forgiveness along the way has been a blessing to me. I ignored God’s calling for many years. When I finally opened my heart (and ears) to Him, I traveled this journey in faith and with a whole lot of trepidation. Each of you have gone out of your way to make sure I had everything I needed - prayers, information, guidance, support - to be successful. For you - I thank God.

It is amazing how seven congregations can be so individual and yet such a family. Bishop Kusserow was so impressed with the support you showed for each other. You really are unique and faithful. God has blessed our congregations and continues to bless us in ways we have yet to discover.

May God bless us with many more years to celebrate in His name!
