A Quick Update
Today wasn't as bad as we thought. The youth were visible stunned and we have since heard that there were some meltdowns at home later. The congregation took my words at face value and the other Pastors prayed for me in the service.
It is nice to have all this out in the open. We can now talk openly and freely about moving back to Missouri. It is still frightening but our God knows best. It will be a long few weeks. I am a lame duck Youth Pastor but I have a lot to do. Please keep the prayers going.
