Hey David … When you recently moved on from your church, you sent out a “keeping you in the loop” email. It was short, factual, upbeat and didn’t throw anyone under the bus. Just wanted to let you know that yesterday I changed jobs (in business) and that I followed your lead.
DRF—Thanks for the encouragement! Emulation is the highest form of praise. When you leave a ministry or business job, don’t burn bridges. As Jesus said, “bless and curse not.” What you will remember is your response, words and actions. In two years you will forget much of the joys and pains of a farewell, but will remember who you befriended or belittled. The words of Jesus have so much application today!
