Mabel UMCHenson Chapel UMC
Yesterday I had the difficult task of telling the congregations that I serve that I would be leaving them in June. I am being appointed to another parish. I am going to miss all the people I have come to know and love. We have been together for four years, and during those years they have supported Ed and me during some pretty rough seasons in our lives, the death of both my sister, my mother, and many friends. We pastors sometimes feel that we are the sustaining and supporting ones, but I have learned that we are together for a purpose. We are together to carry the good news of the love, grace and mercy of Jesus Christ...and we do this by not only our words, but by loving one another. I am so thankful for my years in this parish. These are some of the best people in the world!
