  1. “The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.”

    Thank you. Ever have moments when you look out of the window and just say: “Is this really what you want. Father?” When you ponder how love gets mashed in the “war of words” threaded around three little letters: G O D? Having one of those moments. Your post and these verses, your words – perfect timing and context. Thank you.

  2. We had the opposite situation at the church I belong to a few years ago. Cory, the Senior Pastor, knew that he wasn’t good at some things, so he encouraged the leadership to bring an Assistant Pastor on board. The church found Pastor Tom, who has a LOT of experience in youth ministry, something Cory was lacking, plus he brought his wife, an excellent pianist, something the church was also lacking. The youth ministry has flourished as has the music ministry, and when Pastor Cory was ready to move on to a different endeavor, we already had a Pastor we knew and loved. The congregation voted unanimously to call Pastor Tom as our senior Pastor, which meant the transition was almost seamless. The church is still flourishing, and we recently received over two-dozen new members.

    Blessings,

    Steve
