Greetings from Interim Pastor Paul Bengtson
“So it’s come to this – my last newsletter article as a pastor. I have been blessed with wonderful support staff throughout my ministry, and to a person they (Jane included) have insisted, “Surely you have something to write for the newsletter!” So here it is, ONE LAST TIME!
Through the years I have challenged confirmation classes and youth groups to consider ministry as a vocation. When they have asked why, I have responded, “It’s the people!” You recognize by now that I am a relatively private person, but it has been my privilege for more than 48 and ½ years to be part of people’s lives in the best of times and some of the worst of times, in times of great joy and in times of great vulnerability. It’s a pastor’s role to bring the presence of Christ into people’s lives.
