Sample Pastoral retirement religious Wording Ideas (#564-3)

To Our Beloved Pastor

For Your Retirement

Thank you for blessing our church with
humble leadership, heartfelt ministry,
and a deep love of the Lord. 

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.

In writing a new chapter in your life,
as you relocate to another part of
God’s vineyard, we pray that
“The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: 
The Lord make his face shine upon thee,
and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up his countenance
upon thee, and give thee peace.”

Anchored by a striking, two-tiered black crystal base, there isn’t a lot of extraneous detail to the Wave Pastor Retirement Plaque. The careful script and gold filigree is all the embellishment this lovely tribute piece needs. Pastor retirement message ideas will find an easy home here. A favorite blessing, a line or two of poetry or scripture would all work beautifully on this plaque. You can also choose from our sample pastoral retirement religious wording ideas.

“May God bless you and keep you safely in his arms as you continue to serve in this last dispensation of time.” These words ring true for any pastor starting the next chapter in life. Appreciation verses for a retiring minister aren’t hard to come by, and when they’re deep etch engraved on a gorgeous crystal piece, they make a lovely statement.
