Just a quick update....
I gave my resignation to Session last night. Everyone was stunned, but very sweet and affirming.
I just returned from meeting with most of my youth group and as I told them about my leaving, it felt like all the air rushed out of the room. But they did take it well, although they are understandably concerned about the future of the youth program. I'm praying that more adults will step up after I leave.
The letter to the congregation is going out today.
I am a bit amused by my colleague's insistence that I have a performance review before I leave. Whatever.
