Rev. Springer's Sonshine Flyer Article

 

Hello Friends,

 

What a strange turn of events, to be back doing ministry with you after 24 years! I was your pastor here at CCU for 6 ½ years from 1988-1994. I loved being with you, and I know I will love it, and you, again this time.

 

Some of you I remember. Sometimes I remember a name but not a face, or a face but not a name. And some of you I have never met, and I look forward to getting to know you. Be patient with me as I learn your names.

 

Though I am excited to be here, the reason that I’m here is painful. I’m here because Dean is not. It is clear that he was a very good pastor to you, and that you loved him. The church has flourished during his ministry. I know you are grieving his death. I did not know Dean, so I will want you to tell me about him. And we will have some opportunities to heal from your hurt and to give thanks for him and his ministry with you.

 

As an interim pastor, I will not be here long-term, but for the time we have together, I will not only serve you in the usual ways , but I will also lead you in some of the traditional tasks of the interim period, healing and celebrating your past and moving with confidence into your future.

 

We have agreed that I am serving half time. That means I will not be doing everything that needs to be done. You can help me set priorities. I invite you to call or email me whenever you need to. And I thank you for helping me as I work with limited mobility, caused by injury to a ligament in my knee. It is healing, but slowly.

 

This is a time of both happiness and heartache. God is in our midst, leading us forward. I am excited by and impressed with the healthy and faithful and vibrant community that you are, and I am so glad to be with you once again.

 

God bless each of you.
