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! 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. 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. 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
