Thank you, Pastor Ruth!
Recognizing Pastor Appreciation Month, our church on Oct. 27 presented the Rev. Ruth Morrison with a card signed by the congregation, a collage of photos from Ruth’s nine years at the church and a cake with her image as part of the eatable icing.
During the 10 a.m. service, Mark Braun — chairperson of the Staff-Parish Relations Committee — spoke about what Pastor Ruth has meant to our congregation and read a poem “Feed My Sheep” about a church’s appreciation for its minister.
The inscription on the card presented to Pastor Ruth read:
“You’ve guided helped and inspired so many.
You are a special blessing in our lives.”
Here are some of the ways in which members of the church signed the card:
Blessings beyond measure
With love and appreciation
Thanks for all you do
Living your faith and love for all
Your wit, charm, grace and inner beauty — is an inspiration to me
So glad you came to us. Look forward to each Sunday with you
Thank you for your care and love for all of us

Ruth, you are great. I am so thankful you are here
You are the reason we come to this church
