A Thank You From Rev. Liz
“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-6
To all the Saints at RPC,
There is simply no way I can adequately thank you for all the extra effort, sacrifice, focus, talents time and treasures you put into the celebration of the installation services on Sunday!
From the extra shine on the floors of Gilchrist Hall
To the professional quality of the video and audio technology
To the inspiring beauty of the music
To the absolutely flawless planning and execution of the day’s program
To the efficiency and smoothness of the ushering and care of hundreds of people all claiming special status as friends and relatives of the pastor (my bad)
To the sacrifice of seats … especially the Music Ministry’s complete self effacing deference to our guest preachers…
The entire day was a spectacular expression of God at work, Roxbury Presbyterian Church’s unique mission in the world and your important role in that mission! God’s light shined! The Church’s light shined… all because of your hospitality and your grace! You are simply the best!
Please know how very much I appreciate each and every one of you and even though this thank you is inadequate, it comes from the depths of my heart. As the preacher reminded us Sunday morning, “we are all in this together!” I look forward to the next leg of our journey with eagerness and humility. I can’t think of any place I would rather be than right here laboring for God’s kingdom with you!
To God be the glory for the Great things He is already doing!
