A Farewell from Jennifer
On Christmas Day at the 10am service we will do the brief prayers for the ending of a pastoral relationship. They include the following prayers:
This is my prayer for all of us. I am so thankful for all that has been—the baptisms, the funerals, the pastoral connections with so many of you. I will miss you. And I am so excited for the future of the Church of the Epiphany, even if I will not be a part of it. I know that God will be with you—and with Nathan and me and the Diocese of Arizona. We have one Lord, one faith, one baptism—and we belong to one church. This pastoral relationship is ending, but we are still one in Christ.
