PASTOR RON UPDATES HIS RETIREMENT STATUS

June 14, 2017

Dear UCUMC members and friends,

I am writing you this letter as an update on my retirement which will be effective as of June 30, 2017. It has been a privilege to serve as the pastor of this wonderful congregation for what will by then be 10 years. Next January I will celebrate my 70th birthday. While I have never thought of age as a deciding factor and still don’t, it simply feels to me like the right time for Terry and I to move into a new chapter in our lives. A good friend of mine who retired a year ago put it like this: “I can’t expect God to write the next chapter in my life if I don’t open the page.” Terry and I are ready for that next chapter.

While this is certainly a significant time in the life of UCUMC, it is something that is part and parcel of our United Methodist connectional and appointment system.  In my view, the Bishop and Cabinet have chosen the best candidate to lead you into a great future.  Along with Dr. Boggs, I believe we have in place a leadership team, staff, and a transition plan that will enable this congregation to move confidently and boldly into God’s future. I urge you to accept and fully support this new person God has chosen to be your Spiritual Leader and Shepherd.

As I make this transition over the weeks ahead I ask you to remember this above all else: while I am moving on, God is staying put. I hope you find hope and confidence in His promise and presence. In the words of God’s spokesman, Jeremiah: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

Blessings to you all,
