I want to share with you about my decision to transition out of the PYM Youth Program Coordinator position within the next few months.
One of the most exciting and life-giving parts of this job has been traveling around and meeting you in your homes and Meetings. While I have loved being part of such a large and varied community, doing so has often required that I be away from home as much as 50% of the time. As my partner, Andrew, and I have proceeded in our clearness process for marriage, it has become apparent to me that I cannot give this work the energy and attention it deserves and at the same time care well for a new marriage.
I care deeply about the youth of PYM and the success of this program and am committed to making this transition as smooth as possible. In the meantime, I will continue moving forward on our program goals and objectives, visiting Meetings and working with teen committees to plan upcoming gatherings. As always, I love to hear from you and look forward to continuing our work together through the summer.
