Greetings in the name of the Lord.

When I first arrived at this congregation back in July of last year, I was given the keys to the building and a ID and password for the church website. Looking at the website I noticed a section called Pastor’s Blog. Asking Debbie about it, I was told that it was for the Pastor to put his thoughts and a way to get information out to the congregation. I was also told that Pastor Ed had not used it much. At that time, I made a commitment to myself that I would attempt to post something every week. There have been some weeks when I have slipped, but by and large I have kept that commitment. You can imagine how I felt on Sunday when I asked who has read the blog from the previous week and saw only a few hands going up. It was a bit disheartening. Week after week I have started my work for the week by composing an entry for the blog. I have put my thoughts, my ideas and some humor in the attempt. Now what am I to? After prayerful consideration, I have decided to continue what I committed myself to when I first arrived. I will continue to start my week by getting a short addition to the blog ready and posted. It will be in God’s hands and yours, what will happen to it.

Look next week for a little blurb about a new program that is coming to our conference called “Abide.” I will be going to an investigational meeting concerning it this Thursday night.

May God’s love and grace be with you this week.

See you in church!
