Last Sunday I volunteered to be the interim preacher between Steve Eldred and Dan Lush. It was a great day with a special charge conference to approve a bridge loan and name the Merrill parsonage after member and builder, Mark Merrill, welcoming a VIM team from Virginia, potluck, praying for Dan and Maggie, and dedicating the new parsonage. This video clip has Fran Lynch welcoming the VIM team in worship.
After the parsonage dedication the VIM team unloaded the Lush's moving van. Dan and Maggie, Shenandoah, and Cassidy are settling into a brand new parsonage to begin their year of interim ministry at Willow. Here is a clip of the parsonage at the time of the unloading.
I invite you to include in your prayers our churches experiencing a pastoral transition this week. Willow, St. John, Seward and Moose Pass, Jewel Lake, East, Anchor Park, Douglas, and Northern Light.
Grace and peace,
