I love how he openly shared with the congregation the work God is doing in his heart to strengthen and encourage him, to help him in his times of struggles and to celebrate with him in his joys. I love listening to the stories of how much Father Tom has influenced the lives of so many. The stories remind us all that we have been blessed by a fellow traveler named Tom for 14 years on our faith journey. The stories also communicate two important life lessons for us: that God uses other people, like Father Tom, in our lives and we are all in need of God’s power, love and grace. I have heard that Father Tom regularly takes time to pray for others by name which means so much. So we bow our heads in prayer, we laugh and we cry together as a parish family. Father Tom worked hard with the local clergy as they shepherd across town. This tells me that he understands the importance of unity in diversity within the Body of Christ. He has his eyes focused on advancing the Kingdom of God through his commitment to the universal Church. We are not here to build our own kingdom but to build the Kingdom of God. Father Tom’s humility is always present in the way he ministers to others.
Our pastor loves life. Our pastor has a great sense of humor. Our pastor is funny. Our pastor enjoys life. This is obvious in all he does. Father Tom is a smiling pastor, a man filled with joy. Our church is called to focus on making disciples who live the Gospel crossing racial and economic lines with great joy. When living in a society where tensions have reached national attention over this past year, I understand the spiritual and emotional weight of loving one’s neighbor, humbly and graciously confronting conflict and pursuing justice. Without the discipline of celebration, authentic relationships or a hearty laugh, we can easily lose ourselves in this work. Humor provides much needed levity. Father Tom models this for us and so we are called to practice. So as Father Tom begins his retirement and today as we celebrate his legacy here at Saint Christine’s, I would like to say to our pastor for serving the people of God and for shepherding our flock: ‘THANK YOU!’
Finally thank you for simply being you.
With love, Steve
