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.”
