As I walked into the office on March 1st, I took one look at the empty desk and was flooded with emotions. Sadness…that my mentor was not sitting behind it. Surprise…that I could see it. And excitement…of what God has in UCLC’s future!
Gwen has taught me so much over the last 10 years. Some of the things I had hoped never to have to learn, like Word Perfect. Yes, someone does still use it! Others I thought I knew well enough, like love, until I met and interacted with her and saw what it really looked like at street level. Gwen has a way of making each person feel like they are the only person important to her in that moment. In her interactions, it is never about herself, but always about lifting and supporting the other. I am grateful to have had the chance to learn from her! I am blessed to have felt that love and support!
As I sit at this desk, I am reminded that it is the only part of the position that is “mine”. Everything about United Churches of Lycoming County is just that, about United Churches of Lycoming County! We move forward together. We will be able to build on a solid foundation and add the next level. What do you see in UCLC’s future? Where are the gaps we can stand in? What is it that makes UCLC hold a special place in your heart? And how can you come alongside us to use your gifts and talents so that, together, we step into what God has planned? There is not a single person that can do this alone! My friends, let’s get started! – Tammey
We are making 2021 a special year of prayer and celebration involving all congregations and people in the county.
