As we near Thanksgiving, Karen and I feel especially thankful for all of you.
Our C4SO dean, Patrick Wildman, commented recently, “I tell our younger pastors, ‘Look for a church that not only wants to be cared for by you, but that is willing to care for you when you need it.” We have found that at Savior. A healthy church has a kind of mutuality, the give-and-take that you see in a strong family.
Last month I was telling a friend, who’s worked for years on church staffs, about how well the people of Savior have cared for Karen and me during her long stretch of pain and surgeries. He said in reply, “I’ve been on staff at two churches, and I’ve never gotten what you’re talking about.”
Thank you for your care for us.
