Thank you, Wednesday Journal, for the terrific article on Rev. Sarah Iliff McGill’s first six months of pastoral work at Fair Oaks Presbyterian Church [Living into the role of pastor, Lifelines, April 13]. As a member of Fair Oaks and one who is actively involved in youth programs, I appreciate Sarah’s enthusiasm and dedication to serving our youths, especially her exceptional desire and ability to communicate with each of them one on one (not an easy task as any parent can attest). My 13-year-old daughter, for example, was amazed that a minister would actually call our house and ask to speak to her, not her parents!
We are blessed to have such a wonderful pastor at Fair Oaks.
