This is a week of saying goodbyes.
--The seminary professors sing a farewell blessing to the Lutheran Theological Seminary graduates (can you find Wayne?) Also in the photos: ELCA missionary professors Ted Zimmerman and John LeMond and much loved ELCA retired seminary professor, seminary president, pastor, and now volunteer professor (an inspiration to us all) Jerry Schmalenberger.
-- Thida will be returning to Myanmar to play a lead role in the Christian formation of families, youth and children, especially through Sunday School ministries.
-- Katrina & Ryan, our wonderful ELCA neighbors spent two years teaching intensive English studies to international students and just packed up their bags... and their cat (!) to return to the USA, where they will be attending Princeton Seminary.
"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: ...a time to keep, and a time to send away..." --the wise old preacher of Ecclesiastes 3
