ALL THINGS CONSIDERED



THE END After almost 34 years, this is my last column.  From the start, I called it “All Things Considered”, because that was my intent and purpose – to consider everything I thought was important to all of us as citizens of both this nation and the Kingdom of God.  I have used the phrase since 1970, which predates the creation of NPR and its news program by that same name by several years.
I would like to use this last column to address both you and Fr. Shaun.

MY SISTERS & BROTHERS: I have read all your notes and cards and I appreciate the fact you will miss me, just as much as I will miss you!  I deeply appreciate your generous kindness to me, and I hope to use your monetary gifts to visit the places “I have always hoped to see.”
Perhaps the most heartwarming message expressed, is how many believe I have made a difference in their lives. I truly hope that is so, not just now but for years to come.  The reason for my hope is if this is true, then it will all have been God’s doing – not mine.
Many will perhaps have expectations of Fr. Shaun.  Please do not expect him to be like me; he is not “my replacement.”  He is a talented, energetic and gifted minister who will bring his own abilities to this community of faith, helping it continue to grow.
Please give Fr. Shaun the same support and encouragement you have given me over these years.  Your kindness has helped me to grow as a pastor, and I believe the same kindness will help him to grow in the years ahead.
Lastly, if I have offended or hurt anyone by something I said or did – or failed to do, I pray you will forgive me. 


FR. SHAUN: For 26 years, the people of this parish have been my family.  Now, I truly believe God wants me to share them with you.  It is already obvious to me you will bring a variety of gifts to this community – all of which will be a true blessing.
I wish you well and I pray your ministry here will bring forth an abundance of goodness in those who are now parishioners and in those who will join them in years to come.
Please know you and this community will always be in my prayers.

GOODRICH On Tuesday, I will leave for St. Mark Parish in Goodrich to serve as Sacramental Minister for that community.  My address will be:  8462 Burpee Road, Grand Blanc, MI 48439
My email address will be: dfrhowell@gmail.com
