What a reunion! For those who remember when those adult children were just little ones it was a joy to see them all celebrate Pastor Steve's influence in their lives. Steve, you have reflected God's unconditional love for us as a community of faith. I appreciate so many things about my life in Zion -- you will always be my friend. Now enjoy some time with Norma and Micah before you continue the fight for justice, please???

“Retirement is not the end of the road, just a bend in the road.” Steve, thank you for all you did for us on this leg of your life’s journey. Enjoy the next stretch of the road! And thanks go out to everyone who participated in creating this online service and the retirement drive-by. It was great to see you- Mary
