It has been a longer than I would prefer since the last post. A lack of writing is in no way congruent with the amount of activity in Sandy's life and mine. Little grass has grown beneath our feet since we unloaded our furniture. Thankfully, we are seeing a lot of new people attending the church, and there is always the adjustment to God's work in a place so different from the Southeast.
Since arriving, I have been teaching through the kingdom parables. Unless I get a sense that God would have us take a different direction we will stay with the teachings of Jesus for the next year. Rather than taking for granted that we, as a community of faith, are on the same page, we are going to take a fresh look at what Christ had in mind for his church.
More later . . .
