(Eph 1:16-18, ESV)
First and foremost, and on behalf of Rochelle and myself, please know that we are grateful beyond words for all the love and compassion we have experienced through you here at Marble. You have embraced us as both friends and fellow disciples of Christ, and we are better people for all we have learned and experienced because of this time that we have shared together. For this, we are humbly grateful.
Looking back on our time together, my heart is warmed by the worship, ministry, and spiritual formation we have shared, and the transformative journey we have travelled together. How much I cherish our walking together as our hearts have further deepened, our doors have opened wider, our presence in this community has become more impactful, and our understanding of our God given purpose has become clearer. Together, we have each gained and grown in our respective and important ways. I am leaving a better person and Christian disciple because of the time we have spent together. My hope is that you may be able to say similar things about yourself from our time together.
