Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront
Well, its official – - – we are moving. We are leaving the northeast and making a new home in Texas. And while I am tempted to say that we are moving back to Texas, that phrase really doesn’t express what we’re doing. Yes, we’re returning to the city from which we moved 7 years ago. BUT, we are moving as completely different people than when we last moved. It would sell short the impact that the city of New Haven and her people have had on us if we simply looked at this move as a return to where we’ve come from.
My family has been so transformed by this place. Our worldview has shifted. Our vision has broadened. Our definitions of community and family are changed. Our love has grown richer. Our spiritual roots have grown deeper.
The city of Dallas has some huge shoes to fill.
I can’t say that, as of yet, I am excited about this development. Who leaves Chatham Square? Who leaves a successful business? Who leaves a life-giving, authentic church family? Who leaves dozens of amazing people, and a handful of really great friends?
But the case to move was made solidly, and we are being received into a loving group of people – both familiar relationships and new ones. So the process has begun. We move this weekend (August 31st) and with a deep love in our hearts for those of you who served as our extended family, we will deeply miss you.
Thank you for your friendship and all you taught us.
Ken and Lori Janke
