Conie Borchardt, our beloved former music director, is starting her new music leader position on Pentecost at Edina Morningside UCC. Conie’s hand written thank you note to St. Mary’s is posted on the bulletin board outside of the sanctuary for all to read. For broad consumption it’s typed up here:
Dear St. Mary’s Community of these past 8.5 years,
I am so touched by the various expressions of love and care and thoughtfulness I’ve received since my taking leave in March. My heart is full with many emotions, primarily of which is gratitude for the genuine care for persons and our wider world beyond.
The grace and perseverance you bring to hard things.
The laughter & joy & shared sorrow in our life together.
Keep seeking each other as whole, independent, interconnected and continually working like Jesus towards a more just world.
I will remember St. Mary’s with much fondness.
Stay in touch,
