… endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

Dear Pastors,

We are in the liminal space of an unexpected journey. Most of us have never had to find our way through a global pandemic. This is hard, confusing, anxiety producing and bewildering.

I am filled with gratitude with all the hope and love that has been expressed from all of you in helping each other and stepping up to help each other, share ideas, prayers and concerns.

Many of the retired pastors of our presbytery have also offered to help you in this unknown journey. They have volunteered to be “listeners” for you. If you find a time you just need to talk and have someone listen, they are here for you.

We all know that sometimes we are overwhelmed, frustrated, sad, and perplexed and what we need to move forward is someone to listen. Call or email one of our HR pastors. We will all have a time when we will need someone just to listen.  They are here for you.

The following HR pastors have volunteered. This list may grow over time.

Rev. Elizabeth Morrison
Rev. Herb Huffmon
Rev. Harold Johnson
Rev. Chet Penza
Rev. Bronc Radak
Rev. Sherman Skinner

Rev. Joanne Miller (Joanne is not retired but has volunteered to be on this list)

You can find their contact information in the Presbytery Directory. Sonja sent all pastors and church offices the updated directory this week. If you didn’t receive it please email [email protected]  and ask for Sonja send you one.

Hope doesn’t disappoint us,

Jeanne
