To: The Baptized and the Pastors of Trinity Lutheran Church, Davenport, Iowa
From: Rev. Randall L. Golter
Re: Acceptance of the Divine Call
Grace, mercy and peace to you in the name of the Christ.
After a deliberate and prayerful process, listening to His saints at Trinity and praying to the Lord of the Church for His will, I humbly accept the divine call to serve His flock at Trinity as Senior Pastor in Davenport, Iowa.
Your kindness, prayers, and evident commitment to the Lord’s Word and work was—and is—greatly appreciated by Elizabeth and me.
Upon reflection—with which I am sure you fully agree—the Lord’s use of His people to do His bidding is quite humbling. He does not absolutely need us, but He chooses to need us, as He keeps us close to Him and brings more to Himself through the Word and the Holy Sacraments.
We joyfully receive His care and gather as many as we’re able to receive the same underserved grace and mercy. This is quite spectacular!
Let’s petition the Lord for His help through this transition process, not only for us but for the Trinity staff and members. We go forward with absolute confidence in His steadfast care and intention for us (Romans 8:31-32).
Looking forward to serving in your midst.
Cordially in Christ,
