I just want to say "thank you" to everyone who helped make this past Saturday such an amazing day for me. I am overwhelmed at your many expressions of love and encouragement to recognize my having been at Cornerstone now for 10 years as your pastor.
Everything was just perfect, and I was so shocked at all you had done to surprise me! Your kindness and generosity to me and my family has been an incredible blessing - not only this past Saturday - but for the entire 10 years we have been here!
In many ways, it is hard for me to believe that 10 years has passed. We have been through a great deal together. It has been a joy to see how God works in everything to bring about good for His Kingdom and His people. I am thankful to God for each of you, for the privilege it is for me to serve alongside you as pastor of Cornerstone. I know there have been many shortcomings on my part, and I ask you for your forgiveness in those cases, and am so thankful for your grace toward me. As long as the Lord allows, it is my aim to serve you as He leads, and to do my best. Thank you all again for your love and kindness!
