Dear friends –
I am so excited to finally be here at St. Matthew’s! When I started imagining this day back in February I pictured daffodils, forsythia, signs of spring and new life, but no matter! My cat, Simon, and I have settled into a temporary apartment, and yesterday my offer to buy a condo off Soule Rd. was accepted. I’ve enjoyed meeting folks this week, getting to know our outstanding leadership and stellar staff people, and sharing conversation in the office, over meals, and in chance meetings in the community. I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you better in the coming weeks. Please stop by the office to say hello, or give me a call or drop me an email to set up a time to get together.
I’m in the office Monday through Thursday, most reliably in the mornings. You can reach me anytime either by contacting the office, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for making me feel so welcome here, and I’m looking forward to great ministry and mission together!
