>Don’t get me wrong, I want to savor every moment of the holidays and enjoy the time with my family, but I also won’t be sad to see the calendar change to 2011.

Our congregation at Good Shepherd has called a new pastor and he begins on January 2, 2011. To say that I am looking forward to it would be a tremendous understatement.

In no way does that mean that I have been unhappy with our interim pastor of the past 4 years. Nothing could be further from the truth.  Pastor Dick and his wife Joyce have been a huge blessing to us and I love them dearly. I can honestly say that I feel as plugged in and engaged with our church family as ever.  It’s just that Pastor Clint (the new guy) has that “je ne sais quoi”.

Apparently, the feeling is mutual. See what I mean??!??!
