So Long, and Thanks For All The Fish…..

No, this is not a post about The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Sunday was our last Sunday at Echo Christian Fellowship. We came there hurt because of many things that happened to us, and Kevin gave us a place where we could heal up and rest. Kevin told me that he would not expect us to do anything and he stood true to his word. Thank you, for your integrity on that, my friend.

Not only did he do that for us, but the church there opened up their hearts and lives to us. We made some great friends and know that we will always be welcomed back with open arms by everyone there. Thank you for being a place where we could come, connect, heal up and feel loved.

The best part about the whole experience was leaving on such a good note and with an actually “goodbye”, unlike with my previous experience. They prayed over us and sent us off with a blessing. We actually felt like there was a conclusion and a closing to the whole chapter there. And I guess that is why not having that “goodbye” at my previous church, left us with something missing. Saying “goodbye” is hard to do but it is such a necessary thing. It helps brings closure and resolution. But all in all, I really want to say thank you too Kevin for being a friend, man of integrity and a great pastor!

And if you want to see a cool way to do a communion service, which happened to also be the last service we had there, check out his post about it on his journal space. It was a really neat way to do communion.
