It has been a privilege to serve as your Bridge Priest since February. I enjoyed getting to know you and working with you on the ministries of this parish. Your Sunday worship leaflet proclaims: “All baptized members of St. John’s are ministers of the parish.” This is true. You have outstanding lay leaders and a wonderful spirit of working (and celebrating) together. Eric Litman will continue this collaborative spirit that is a hallmark of St. John’s. Thank you for your many kindnesses during the past seven months. Let us keep each other in prayer always.
