Happy to not wear pajamas
When we were deciding if we should be the lead pastors at South Everett Foursquare four years ago we met with Chuck and Ann Loomis to get their feedback and advice. They were a great couple that we befriended at our previous church. They encouraged us to pursue the new position and gave us, as we came to expected, honest feedback. We decided to take the position but only if they would come along for the ride. I don’t think they expected this ride.
So when we announced our leaving WA I immediately got on the calendar last supper with the Loomis. We didn’t want the calendar to get filled up without having one last meal with them. I said to them we came in with a meal and we would like to go out with one.
When our dinner came closer they informed us that we would be going out to dinner and not to come to their house in our pajamas. So on a Sunday night we met up and they took us to the Palisades Restaurant on the shores of Elliott Bay in Seattle. This is a great place overlooking the sail boats and cruise ship docks. We got a spectacular view of Seattle at sunset. With open hearts we shared life together one last time and with open mouths we shared one last meal. We, as is customary with Chuck and Joseph, ate way too much.
Thanks Chuck and Ann for eight great years. We hope your return on investment was high!
Fish + Big Shrimp over mushrooms and spicy sauce = explosion in mouth
Christy’s meal was the perfect trifecta: scallops, filet mignon, smoked asparagus
