Preparing for my final Sunday as pastor of Forest Grove Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Lucas, TX. Sermon is ready. Still have work to do to ready my heart, mind and spirit. Time to pray. I am hopeful, for the congregation and the wonderful people there, as well as for myself and my family and our ministry that goes forth from this place out into the world. We will carry with us so much that we have learned and received. We are stronger, wider, humbler, and hopefully more faithful and loving followers of Jesus Christ because of the time we have spent here. I hope the same is true of them because of our time together. If you need a good cry, FGCC at around 10:30am tomorrow is a good place to be. There will also be some laughter and many prayers and blessings. Sermon notes will be up tomorrow afternoon on Mark 4 – “Seeds on the wind”. And then later you’ll hear more about what is next for me in my new ministry that God is unfolding in and through me.
