Friedens said goodbye today to Pastor Rob. Although he is not officially departing until Tuesday, he gave his last sermon and we celebrated his almost 10 years with us with a pot luck luncheon, fellowship, and a token of our appreciation. In his normal Pastor Rob fashion he jokingly commented about checking the bag to be sure nothing was going to jump out of it! The card said it best …paraphased it said “In life success is often found in the journey, not in the destination, wishing you the best as you begin this next adventure.” He will begin his next Call on March 1st with Holy Spirit Lutheran in Reading. A framed certificate of appreciation was presented for his office, and when he looks at it, we hope he will remember the heart of Friedens. We wish him, and his family, Blessings and happiness always.
