OT: Hello New York!

Although I haven't been able to tell more than a few of you yet, I'm now free to announce it more publicly: We are moving to New York!

Technically speaking, it's Pultneyville, NY where I'll be the new minister of Pultneyville Reformed Church.

While, of course, we're sad to leave Dunningville, we are extremely excited about the new context and a whole new group of people to get to know.

Those of you who knew - thank you for your quiet support.

All of you... guess what?! We're only an hour and a half from Niagara Falls (in one direction) and the Finger Lakes (in the other).

Grace and Peace,
`tim

All the best,

Chris

Congratulations Tim. I hope the move goes well for you and your family. I lived with my sister and brother-in-law for many years as I grew up and he was a minister. I know about the moving about and how it can be good or bad. I hope that the move is one of your best and that the new church will be a blessing. Jack

Congratulations on the new Call!

And I suppose you realize that you will now be within easy driving distance of the Men's Spring Knitting Retreats!

He'll ALMOST be in my stomping grounds.

The full-time job is in the same county(24 miles southeast), though I live 35 miles further south; the summer time travel job is less then an hour east of his new location, and the winter time travel gig a little further south-east.

Congratulations, Tim. I hope you have a smooth move and that the new congregation welcomes you fully and warmly. I'm sure your old congregation is sorry to see you leave. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

How wonderful and bittersweet! So like the paschal mystery of Good Friday and Easter. Goodbye to one life and hello to a New Life. God's blessings on you in your new ministry!

Congratulations! You had told me about this possibility when we were at the Mid-West retreat. You'll be about a 2 hour drive from me (I did have to Mapquest to find out where Pultneyville was), I'm 20 minutes away from Niagara Falls. So when does the move happen?

My last Sunday at Dunningville will be April 18th. I'll be starting in Pultneyville in May.

We're excited about starting somewhere new but a bit overwhelmed with everything that needs to get done in the next month.

Maybe we'll have to start a Niagara Region Men's Knitting Retreat?!

Grace and peace,
