It has been a while since I last blogged about anything. Tomorrow is the beginning of a new start for me. After a month off from church leadership I am ready to start another year of ministry. I am so grateful to God for a church family that allows me to get a break and I am energized about what is ahead.
What am I looking forward to?
Tomorrow I am excited to see the people I work closely with again. Staff meeting tomorrow will feel a bit like a family reunion (without the crazy aunt or uncle – well maybe not). One of my biggest highlights is going to the church office everyday and working with people I care for and about. It is a real privilege.
Tomorrow night Brenda and I will spend some time hanging out with our Elders and their spouses. This group is a unique collection of godly individuals who take their leadership roles seriously but don't take themselves too seriously. I am looking forward to laughing together.
Tomorrow starts the beginning of a new chapter at our church. This year we will be engaged in discovering what our next steps for church multiplication will be. I am thrilled to be in a church environment where we are on an adventure of discovering what our part is in God's work of transforming our region. Working towards a change in the name of our church and considering church multiplication is going to be a very rewarding experience this year.
Tomorrow, Lord willing, I will wake up and have the honor of seeing people I haven't been with for the last four weeks. The time away has been good. Our time together is going to be fun and very rewarding. I am looking forward to it. See you soon.
