One of the great things about this time of year is that it's the time that we say "thank you" to people. We have Sunday School recognition and we say thank you to the teachers for their time and talent and to the children for coming.
On Pentecost we award the Spirit of St. Paul's awards and say thank you to people who do things that we often take for granted.
This year we are saying special thank you's to Pam Hinds, Jill Cory and Evelyn Parmley who are retiring from some ministries after many years.
It reminds me of how many, many people there are to say thank you to at St. Paul's - so many people give of their time and talent in so many ways - and that's what makes St. Paul's special. And it is so easy to take for granted.
So - I want to say thank you to all of you - for all that you are and for all that you share.
