My tribute to Pastor John

Today I was writing a note Pastor John to take care of a building maintenance issue and suddenly remembered how grateful I am to have him working at the church full time.

So today I am stopping to say "Thank you, Pastor John. You're the bomb!" You're always there when we need a to-do list completed. You keep the lawn looking great. You build signs, build shelves, you even build bridges! It's amazing what all Pastor John can do.

He takes care of playground maintenance, van maintenance, and building maintenance too. He fills in for Sunday School teachers, Sunday School Superintendent, and anyone else who's absent on Sunday.

He does the announcements, takes up offering, prepares the prayer list. Studies for sermons, and teaching times. I always know where to find him first thing in the morning, he faithfully starts his day with prayer, and then on to the computer for e-mails and blogging!!

Pastor John is a gem that's gets disguised by all the "stuff" he does. One day when he moves on to have his own church, he will be greatly missed, but until that time comes I honor you today for your dedication to God and your service to our church and community.

Thanks Pastor John...we love you.

Well I just read the bottom part about when you leave to take a church. Uhmmmm, you can't do that until we leave, Okay?

Actually, I think it would be a great idea for Pastor John and Christina to plan to stay until we retire and then, they can just take this church. That will solve both our problems. We won't have to live without them and they can still have their own church!! I am so brilliant. One day, PJ you'll be as brilliant as I am...
