Parting Words for the Pastor
Are you really going to leave us?
How big is your new church?
What about your kids?
Are you sure about this?
Does your new church know what they're getting?
Who is going to do my funeral if you are not here?
Why do you have to move so far away?
Have you found a place to live out there?
How does your mother feel about you moving to Virginia?
Is there any decent barbeque out there?
When are you actually moving?
Is there any way I can help you?
Are you going to straighten out that mess in Washington?
Who will be preaching after you're gone?
Can I be baptized before you leave?
Where are you going to find a bunch of old gym rats to play ball with?
So, have they seen you play golf?
I will really miss you.
I'm sorry to see you go.
Tell Sam and Jake and Becca to call me if they need anything.
I'll take care of your yard until you sell your house.
I know you wouldn't be going if you didn't believe it was God's will.
Thank you for being my pastor. You were always there for me.
Thank you, God, for letting me serve such a good and gracious people.
