Two Roads Diverged
I’ve been thinking about what to say. Fifteen years is a long time. As Marion’s Tenth press points out, you came to Tenth with one child, you now have five. This is just one symbol of how much can happen in fifteen years.
When you came to Tenth, no one could predict that you would soon be taking over some of Marion’s responsibilities in a few years. No one even imagined that you would be senior minister quite so soon. Yet, God has so graciously blessed us all through all these unexpected, and sometimes very painful, changes. Our God is a God of paradox—who else could draw joy in pain or triumph on a cross.

A Quest for More
"Marion - Please put a thank you in the blog. So many people from all over the Tenth community participated. I believe we received over 200 dozen cookies. Some people even made it a project to bake 20 dozen or so. I'm thankful that the Lord prompted Sandy Hill and Heather Collins to volunteer for precisely the help we needed, and for the faithful quiet work of Otis Word and Sylvester Presley."
I walked in the preparation room, by the way, and saw the Kempf team at work - Cathy, Bob, Kate, and Annette. I should mention my own role, which was to do quality testing.
Joyce Ostertag made sure we did not pass out in the sun by providing the lemonade and water.
I tell, both of these women worked hard and with cheerfulness to bless the congregation.

We are prepared this day to grant your request of us – to send you forth with our blessing.
We ask these questions of you:
