Dear Friends in the Ohio Conference,
I want to begin with a word of thanks to so many of you who have already greeted me warmly and, in various ways, have invited me into your lives.
I mean more than just goodbye and thanks for the opportunity to share a journey with you, Ohio Conference of the United Church of Christ.
Sometimes Jeff would call me. He would say, “I just don’t like surprises.” Then he would explain a situation, make a request, ask about matters that were under discussion, and add his “two cents worth.” That’s what he called it. But it was always worth much more than two cents!
