“Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you.”
I believe that this quote from Parker Palmer is a reminder about transitions and shifts. Transitions are difficult and challenging with growth potential. Transitions “push and position” us to live into our divine appointments and assignments.
This first page of the Tuscarawas Ties is about some of the shifts and transitions in our district:
Thank you, from Stephanie
Hello, from Shawndelle
Impact of district initiative to Paraguay from Sue Givens
Throughout the newsletter there will be opportunities to listen, discern what shift, transition God is nudging you into.
Remember: God has a plan for your life that involves a good future.
Thank You from Stephanie
I have been very blessed by the pastors and laity of the Tuscarawas District the last six years and I want to say, “Thank you!” It has truly been an honor to work with all of you, the conference office staff and other district offices, on so many wonderful ministries and events.
Thank you also for the fabulous farewell party hosted by Doris Brown and her family at Navarre Otterbein UMC. I was overcome with such joy to have so many of you attend. Kevin, Kaitlyn and I have appreciated your friendship over the years.
Our next journey takes us to Greenville, South Carolina. Kevin has been transferred for work. Kaitlyn has been enrolled in high school and has made the volleyball team. She is very excited!
I have been working with Shawndelle Chester, who has been hired to be the next Administrative Assistant, and you are in good hands. My last day in the office is August 15, but I will be working on behalf of the Tuscarawas District Office, remotely, for the next few months to help Shawndelle and the district with the transition.
Thank you for all of the fond memories. You will always have a special place in my heart!
