It has been two years since my last visit to the congregation in Miles, Texas. Pr. Diane Eggemeyer has been serving there for seventeen years, beginning as a Synodically Authorized Worship Leader, while attending seminary, and then as an ordained pastor. She is preparing to retire next summer, so I was with them as she made that announcement.
- This is a small but vital congregation known for feeding people. From their monthly food pantry that feeds on average 25-30 families to their potluck feasts, they fill the stomach well.
- They also fill the spirit. Pr. Eggemeyer will leave big shoes to fill, but they will go on!
