The pain is different but the brain and body still ache. Our Youth Pastor Kris Gowdy is moving on to Spring Arbor Michigan FMC. He has been here for one year.
I've know for almost a week and now that it is publicly announced it is REAL. The loss is REAL. The HOPE is also REAL. His house sale is almost final and within only 8 days so that is affirmation.
But the brain funk is still real. The inner turmoil processing is real. NOW to process and move along and move ahead.
We have great volunteers and youth ministry at Lakeview will survive and thrive but the pain is still there.
