Dear Pastor Sam
Dear Pastor Sam,
I am a regular reader of your column and I enjoy the letters that come in.
I am also one of your friends on your Facebook page and I trust you when you say you won’t post any real names on your column.
I am writing because not only do I read your column every week but I read your blog regularly as well.
Some weeks back you posted a story about your retirement. I was not a member of your church but I was shocked when I heard that you retired. I want to apologize for not keeping in contact with you like I should. I kept you on my Facebook friends and read your post and I knew what was happening with you but you didn’t know how I felt.
I just want to say that I miss your presence and I do care about you and Kelly. I am sorry for not staying in touch and I want you to know I care.
Thanks for the time you spent in our association. You were a blessing to many folks and many of them will never say anything about it. I am letting you know that there are many folks that care about you and Kelly.
Keeping doing what you are doing as we are still being blessed.
I Still Care and I Am Still Your Friend
Thank you so very much for your letter. The day I wrote that post I was a bit discouraged and down. Many posted on my Facebook and I was out of my discouragement before the day was over. I thank God for people like you. You make serving a blessing. Please keep in touch. You know my number it hasn’t changed if you want to call.
