    You are leaving us in a much better place than we were.

    You have brought common sense and good judgement.

    For all of this I am grateful.

    I wish you both the best. Virgina is a wonderful place to call home

    Bishop Mathes, In the few times I worked closely with you, I appreciated your patience and grace in what were difficult and challenging circumstances. Thank you for your services to the Diocese of San Diego: for your efforts to carefully unwind some of the elements that needed unwinding, for strengthening those things that were going well, and for introducing creative new approaches to ministry and service. We are indeed a more caring place thanks to you. All good success to you and Terri at VTA.

    We may be losing a beacon of solidarity and sensibility. But the call to God and our direction is the ultimate decider. You have always had a pulse for God’s word and discernment. We will certainly grieve the loss of a great earthly intermediary, and I pray that the transition goes well, and you find many more blessing to your calling and new congregation. Thank you for all your intercession and Godly guidance.
    Blessings -Kris Summit
