I've been thinking a lot lately about change and transition. This is the season for it in much of our society. May is the month for college graduations. June sees high school graduations and is a traditional time for weddings. In the United Methodist Church, June 30 is traditionally the date clergy appointments change and there is a bit of that going on in our area this year. I, personally, am completing my time as pastor of the UMC of Fonda-Fultonville and Salem UMC and the pastor in Amsterdam is moving.
