Farewell From Cecile

by Cecile Gilson


In Ecclesiastes we are famously reminded that there is a time for everything. This week I am closing in on the time for me to move to another chapter in my life. For the past 17 years I have had the privilege of serving the churches, clergy and laity of the Connecticut Conference UCC. I have come to know many of you over that time; you are the voice on the other end of a phone line, the author of an email or attendees at events and Annual Meetings I have attended. I have answered and asked many questions, listened to your stories and concerns, received your blessings and gratitude, and shared in your passion for this Conference and denomination.
Words can never fully express the gratitude I feel as I leave this position. It has been my honor to serve the church in the various roles I have held at the Conference. I know that the mission and ministry of this Conference is in good hands and I am excited for the future that is to come.
The Conference staff, churches, clergy and laity of this Conference will be in my prayers. I will miss you all.
