The community held a farewell party for our family on Wednesday evening. What a wonderful night! Folks from the United Methodist churches I have served for four years, plus dear friends from the other area churches, and all the pastors of our ministerium, who are true brothers in Christ. After the party, we held a worship service and I preached for the final time at Cochran Memorial United Methodist Church, one of the three I have served in my current appointment. It is a beautiful Gothic-style cathedral, located on the National Registry of Historic Places. An emotional evening. This Sunday will be our final Sunday here.
