"You are my pastor"

Thanks to Thom Rainer for this moving letter.

What a GREAT post by Dr. Rainer. Head nodding and audible "mmm's" while reading the entire piece.

Thank you for sharing, Todd. And thank you for your leadership, dedication to the truth, and care for all of us.

God help us to lift you, and the rest of our pastors and elders, up in prayer more each day.
