Pastor Klose's Farewell
Dear Brother’s & Sisters in Christ, Farewell/Godspeed
“On Our Way Rejoicing”. This is the title of one of my favorite hymns and I think expresses very well how I feel about my retirement and departure as your Pastor! “On our way rejoicing, gladly Let us go. Christ the Lord has conquered; vanquished is the foe. Christ without, our safety; Christ within our joy; who, if we be faithful, can our hope destroy?”
Yes, on our way rejoicing! I rejoice about our shared ministry for over 24 years. There have been joys and sorrows. We have shared them all, but I rejoice that I have had the privilege of serving you as Pastor in a shared ministry of Word and Sacrament and teaching the faith, the love of God for all his people. He has been a loving God who has shown his love for us in the life, death and resurrection of his Son, Jesus. I rejoice that we have shared from baptisms of children, teaching confirmation, ist communion, the passing on the faith to the people, to performing marriages and yes, even funerals - celebrating the love of Christ. Sharing and fellowship, music ministry - choirs, bell choirs and our Sunday liturgy. I rejoice in our staff, who in everyday tasks, we all worked together so harmoniously. This I know will continue. I rejoice our ministry to our young people - our retreat - both Confirmation and family retreats at Koinonia; our outreach food collections and our Christmas fair. What great times we shared in Christ!
