I want to tell you all that I met and got to talk with Fr. Christopher Wilkerson, your soon to be Rector, last weekend and see him again last Sunday. He strikes me as a very committed and faithful person who has committed himself to being with you in ministry, for he believes he has been called by our Lord to Appleton, to do just that. This Sunday will be the last Sunday at All Saints for me as your regular supply clergy, and while my initial tenure was to be for a shorter time than over a year, please know that each week has been a blessing for me.
The All Saints family is a lovely and loving, diverse, faithful and talented group of Christians who I have been honored to serve this past year. Know that Stacey and I will be praying for your continued service to our Lord and your growth in Spirit and ministry. Be blessed in loving God, each other and all you are called to serve and do not be deterred nor diverted from your course of faithfulness and love by those who would follow another course. Do all in His love and be as Christ to one another.
