From Our Seminary Intern . . .



'Thank You', and 'See You Soon'


Greetings CGS Family,


As you all may know from our service this past Sunday, this week I am beginning Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) at Methodist Hospital here in Arcadia. CPE is something like a hospital chaplaincy internship, and it is normally required by our conference for candidates for ordained ministry like myself.


CPE is a demanding program, not least because it consists of 40-hour work weeks as well as on-call duties and homework assignments. Pastor Eva and I spoke about this, and we determined that it would be best for me to refrain from my internship duties at the church from now through December. Thus, you will not be hearing from or seeing me as much these next few months.


With that said, this is hardly goodbye. I will still be attending worship throughout this time, and I will resume my internship duties in January.


Nevertheless, I want to thank everyone at Good Shepherd for the internship opportunity thus far. You all have been incredibly gracious and generous with the ministry opportunities that you have given me, and you have supported and encouraged me every step of the way.


I am deeply appreciative of you all, and I feel genuinely blessed that God brought me here to CGS. 


–Michael Chesnut, Ministerial Intern
