French novelist Marcel Proust wrote, “Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
If you have spent even a moment with Jeff Day, then you have found these words to be Gospel.
Jeff is the kind of person, who through handshake and look in his eyes, makes you feel significant.
Jeff is a generous person that gives of his pastoral care, presence, listening ear, and meekness.
After stepping out in faith to take on the interim role of pastoring Church of the Nations, Jeff and Becky faced the most challenging days of their lives.
However, their fortitude is a testament to their faith and marriage.
Jeff has shared his best self with UBC through Church of the Nations, staff collaboration, and continued membership in our faith community.
Jeff, thank you. Thank you for cultivating joy that blossoms in our soul.
As Jeff steps out of this role, please join me in celebrating his good work and partnership in the Gospel. I encourage you to find ways to thank and encourage Jeff.
