Hump Day

What hump?

(10 points to alll the people who immediately let their mind's jump to Marty Feldman on that one.)

If you wish to contact me via e-mail, please use:
revduchess@cox.net
the other church e-dress will be phased out in a few weeks.
the church offices are moving but for now, any mail needs to go to:
Pacific Church, 3401 Adams Avenue, PMB#503, San Diego,CA 92116
And so far, I do not know plans to go anywhere or work any place in particular. Maybe God's memo to me hasn't been forwarded yet..

I appreciate the support of all the emails and calls I have been receiving.

Staying in touch

And then the Board presented the difficult decision we made together that was to vacate the position of Senior Minister and not renew my contract.

My Farewell Address will be posted on the church website by tonight and I would prefer it if you would read that directly, first, before contacting me for to fill in any gaps or answer questions.
