"SPEER-itual Moments"


By: Rev. Gary H. Speer

There is a part of me that gleefully is counting down when it comes to this article—this space I have filled for nearly 14 years here, and many more years before that. On May 1, I won’t have to write one of these. After this one, only 5 more…
 
Week in and week out with a weekly newsletter that we publish…I write much of it…Maryse puts it all together so beautifully…and we try to make it “NEWS” for you—to keep your informed about the life of the church. We share upcoming activities, not just locally, but area-wide and region-wide…we lift up prayer concerns each week…we share birthdays and anniversaries…attendance and offering numbers…and more.

And on May 1, I won’t have to do this. OK, maybe a little cheer from me right now as I think about that…yippee!
 
But after all these years of writing “SPEER-itual Moments” this too will come to an end, and probably one task I really won’t mind giving up.
 
Every week I have to think of something to write…something to say that hopefully will be helpful—and yet it is one more piece of communication—sometimes serious and other times funny, that is one more way we keep connected.
 
But right now it is still the best place I have, that hopefully reaches as many of you as possible…and so it is the best place, the best space, to keep saying this: thank you.
 
Devotedly,
 
Gary
