    Hello Carl:

    Just in case you did not get my email through Cross Roads, I repeat it here:


    A brief not to express my gratitude for your ministry at Cross Roads. I also wanted to say that you nailed it giving your final sermon at Cross Roads. You saved your best for last and I thought it was great. I even took notes! And I love the line about yesterday really did end last night. I will be using that one.

    Blessings to you and Nancy as you move on to Pequea. We will miss your presence and Nancy’s exquisite piano worship.

    I did not know you were vice president of the Chamber. I once held that position.

    Michael L. Courtney
