Ode to the Intern.

3 Sep

Part of my creative and heartfelt send-off on Sunday at Grace – this ode was written and shared during coffee hour by Chris, the coolest organist I know.



From Edgerton to teachers school to seminary afar
To Dawson and Gnome Town, down Chestnut Street by car
Through the sanctuary, down the hallway, to the basement office; treated like a star.
Farewell to our intern at Grace.

Rally Sunday, Reformation, Confirmation Services in tow
All Saints Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmases in the snow
Through Lent and through Easter, and in summer services your care you show.
Farewell to our intern at Grace.

Making health kits for the needy and involving us all
VBS and creation camp – the kids have a ball
Lets not forget sharing family – Aunt Peggy most of all.
Farewell to our intern at Grace.

To another year of school we must send you right away
Papers and tests and professors every day
We certainly hope you don’t turn prematurely gray.
Farewell to our intern at Grace.

So go with God; his strength he’ll provide
His path he’s laid out for you, it will be quite the ride!
And anytime you need it, your friends will be here with arms open wide.
Farewell to our intern at Grace.
