Today was my last Sunday as Assistant Rector at my church. We had a very moving and nice leaving reception after the 11am service. We are going to miss everyone so much. We really do love the people of our church. This move has been a very hard decision to make. But, over the past few months I have been challenged with Acts 20:24:
But I do not consider my life worth anything95 to myself, so that I may finish my task and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the good news of God’s grace.
No matter how much I / we wanted to stay my life is not my own – it is Jesus’. As Bill bright said, Comfortable can be the curse of the Christian. And God has opened doors through some remarkable ways for our move to Virginia, as well as through some conflict. There is still things we need God to move in but we feel that it is time to step out and do what God is calling. So, I am going to Virginia to be Rector of a small church plant. It’s exciting – it’s new and we believe it’s of God. We covert your prayers!
