Ave atque Vale

A friend called this morning to tell me he is retiring this year. His congregation had asked for a pastoral change and that is sad but understandable. Sometimes match-ups don't really set well. So he was looking toward a move this summer. Now comes his District Superintendent to tell him that he is an ineffective pastor, which I think preposterous. So, my friend is retiring. He'll take a part-time church for a while before he retires for good.Collapse )
