Pastor’s Message 03/19/2024

A Message from Pastor Darian

Dearly Beloved Friends,

As I shared with you a few days ago, we have heard from the district superintendent that I will begin a time of spiritual renewal leave on Monday, April 1, 2024. So, my last Sunday of worshipping with you will be on Easter Sunday. What an appropriate day of new beginnings and hope. I am looking forward to the next few weeks of worshipping with you and helping organize a healthy transition for all of you. There will be an interim pastor appointed by the bishop, whose time with you will begin on April 1, and when we find out who that will be, we will let you know.

I have spent a lot of time lately meditating on “Hymn of Promise,” which you can find on page 707 of a United Methodist Hymnal. The last verse feels especially appropriate for us:

In our end is our beginning

In our time, infinity.

In our doubt, there is believing,

In our life, eternity,

In our death, a resurrection,

And at last the victory.

Unrevealed, until its season, something God alone can see.

As we near the Day of Resurrection, I give thanks for each of you and the hope we have in Jesus Christ our Risen Savior. Let us end this Lenten season well and begin the Easter season with the joy of the Lord together!

As always, know how much I love you. It is an honor to serve as your pastor.

all good things,

dr. darian
