The following is the letter that I asked to be read at Immanuel Lutheran Church this morning:
June 29, 2008
Mr. Wayne Schroeder, President
Immanuel Lutheran Church and School
Dear Mr. Schroeder,
Greetings in Christ!Â I pray that this day finds you well and in good spirits, as we await the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I am writing to inform you that after much prayer and consideration, I am returning the call to serve as associate pastor and principal of Immanuel Lutheran Church and School.Â The members of Immanuel have been very kind to us, and clearly have a deep love for the Lutheran faith and for the children of Immanuel Lutheran School.Â It is my hope that the Lord will answer your prayers soon.
I will be announcing this at my congregation on the morning of June 29th.
With the kindest regards, I am
Rev. Todd A. Peperkorn, STM

This warms my heart for the people of Messiah, yet must be heartbreaking for the people of Immanuel.
God bless your continued work among your flock in Kenosha.
God bless you! I know how difficult it is to wrestle with such a decision. The joy is that God promises to bless your labors wherever He places you.
