Dear Rev. Former Pastor

As a pastor in transition, I found myself saying “YES” to this letter to a former pastor.  This letter reflects the proper professional ethics in relating to former church members.  While I plan to remain friends with some people who are also my neighbors in the community, I plan to be diligent in adhering to the ethical guidelines in separating myself completely from the ongoing work of my former church.

Thank you Sharon Temple for sharing this letter.
