Dear Brothers & Sisters of Zion Lutheran Church,
Over the last few weeks I have had opportunities to speak to many people from Zion. It has been a joy to learn of the ministry going on at Zion. I can hear and sense the excitement in the voices of every member I spoke with, as they prepare to do the work in the mission field around the church.
I have also been able to speak to many at St. Stephen’s. It has also given me a chance to reflect on my gifts and abilities. Many prayers on behalf of all have been laid at the feet of the Lord of the Church. Each of those prayers also know that God is in control as he directs the affairs of the church for his will.
I have decided to return my call to Zion to remain at St. Stephen’s. I will keep Zion in my prayers as they continue to call for a shepherd. I also know that the work in Lansing will continue with amazing results according to God’s will. May God richly bless you in your work and calling for a new pastor!
In Christ’s Service,
Pastor Seth P. Dorn
