Honoring Karen

Dear Gatherers,

Thank you for the beautiful send-off Sunday evening. The room was lovely, the liturgy and rituals were profound and meaningful, and the love and care were palpable. And what a treat it's been to read and re-read the cards from you all.

It has been a joy to be the planting pastor of this unique faith community, and I leave with a heart full of gratitude for the opportunity. Thank you. I also leave with the anticipation of watching The Gathering continue to unfold, develop, and grow.

Neil and I continue to hold you close in our souls and prayers.

With love,
