For six years Rachel was our preacher, teacher, pastoral counselor, spiritual director, cheerleader, and interim head-of-staff. We will miss so much about Rachel: her lovingkindness, her tender, and insightful wisdom, her poignant sermons and children’s times, generosity of spirit, creativity, organizational skills, abiding faith—too many gifts to be named here.
