Wording Ideas Honoring a Retiring Pastor (#560-3)

Retirement Celebration

It’s a high calling, 
one sheep being designated 
to lead the others.
But you’ve always shown 
that your master is the 
Shepherd and your job is 
to follow Him wherever 
He leads the flock.

Thank you for blessing 
our church with humble 
leadership, priestly ministry, 
and a deep love of the Lord.
You have blessed us in 
so many ways.

Well done, good and faithful servant...
Enter into the joy of your lord.  
Bible Verse ... Matthew 25:21
