As I take my leave of you, my heart is full of warmth and wonderful memories of my time at UUCMP. It has been a joy to journey beside you, to get to know you and support your good works.
Thank you for the wonderful gifts you gave me last Sunday – the beautiful chalice necklace, the generous check, the delightful octopus bag, and, best of all, your kind words and well wishes. I feel truly blessed!
The UU Ministers Association guidelines state that departing ministers should have no intentional contact with congregants or staff for at least a year after leaving. It won’t be easy, but I will respect that guideline and ask that you do, too. In the meantime, I’ll carry you in my heart.
Blessings upon this congregation and its ministry in the days and years to come!
Yours in faith,
