Special thanks to Leah Bergman, a soprano in the NLC, who shared this devotion with the choir prior to rehearsal on August 1, 2016. Leah will be leaving the NLC after the choir's trip to New Orleans for the ELCA Churchwide Assembly. Although we will miss her dearly, we wish her all the best on her new journey in Iowa.
As many of you know, my life has changed significantly since the last time I saw you all. On June 10th, I moved down to Iowa City, Iowa, my hometown, to start a new full-time position as the Minister of Worship, Music, and Children’s Programs at First Presbyterian Church.
My Mom retired from this church after almost 20 years service and I am taking over her job. This is not just a huge transition for me and my life, but a time of transition and change for the church as well.
