This past weekend Amy, the kids, and I had to say goodbye to a congregation we have come to love intensely. Going through three emotional services, an all-church farewell picnic, and a men's breakfast has wiped me out completely. I hate saying goodbye, especially to someone I really like; I really like (and love) this Stroudsburg Wesleyan Church family.
Swc, we have experienced the beauty, adventure, challenge, and mystery called the local church. I believed in the power and potential of a local church to transform communities in Jesus' name, but now I'm absolutely convinced of it! Journeying with you has been and always will be one of the highlights of my life.
