I rejoice with you as this day finally comes. You all have for years been a blessed by God in order to be a blessing to the ELCA, the Church and the world. May God continue to use you in the years to come.
I have been honored to meet you, know you, and journey with you in various ways. On the 25th Scott and I will celebrate 12 years together and I will be leading worship in a rainbow themed stole.
Peace, Pastor Jeff Ziegler Philadelphia and New Jersey
