I think Jay Smith had a leaving party about two months ago but now it looks like he is not leaving until maybe next year.
I wonder if they will have another leaving party for him.
I remember when Jesus says at the end of chapter 14 of John’s gospel that he is leaving from this place but three chapters later he is still talking and hasn’t yet gone.
“but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. *Rise, let us go from here. – John 14:31
“When Jesus had spoken these words, he went out with his disciples across the brook Kidron, where there was a garden, which he and his disciples entered. – John 18:1
