Minister's Minute: Thank you, St. David’s

This is my last article in this paper. 

I am grateful to editor Ted Murphy and the Optimist for the opportunity to share my thoughts with you monthly since last September. It’s been fun.

I finish as pastor of St. David’s Anglican Church at the end of the month, after two years of ministry there. I have enjoyed this experience. The parish is a multigenerational community of active, committed and capable individuals, who are are caring and friendly folks. We welcome all who visit, and try to extend ourselves to the wider community and world. 

The folks at the parish welcomed me as a Lutheran pastor.

In Canada and the U.S., most Lutherans and Anglicans can serve each other’s churches. It is a busy church, busy in good ways I’ve always said.

At this stage of my career, I’m slowing down, and the parish really needs more than I can offer. I’ve served many congregations, and love working with people and sharing with them the journey of life and faith — however it is each of us experiences this.

God’s heart is infinite compassion. We, the earth and all living things, and all that is, are blessed to have a place therein. So that we may show compassion to one another.

Thank you, St. David’s, the Delta Optimist, and town of Tsawwassen!
