“For Such a Time as This”

Pastor Deb’s Final News Letter Article

“For Such a Time as This”    (The Book of Esther 4: 14)

At my first installation, the presiding minister spoke on the key verse in the liberating story of Queen Esther. You have been called to this ministry “For such a time as this”.  I believe that God definitely called me to The Presbyterian Church in Geneva as well as each church in my thirty-one years of ministry.  And, I am grateful to God and all of you.

Thank you for welcoming me into your lives and your hearts!  I will miss you.  As much as I long to be closer to my growing family, this will be a major change.  I will hold you in my hearts and prayers as we go bravely into the future.  This month of sermons and celebrations will be focused on God’s steadfast love and guidance. 

Thank you for listening to my sermons each week and giving me the respect of a teaching elder as a woman and as an outsider. I’ve been shifting during these seven and a half years from saying, “You” to “Us”. I am a Genevan and New Yorker for another month.  And, I’ve enjoyed immersing myself in this community as well as Seneca Lake.  I pray that your next pastor will be as delighted and blessed.

These are trying times for the country and this world.  I believe you and I are called to speak up, step up and share our faith.  “For such a time as this” we are called.                                                                

May God bless you and keep you, may God’s light guide your future and grant you peace.

Pastor Deb
