I have been quite busy of late, working as many as 50 hours a week and finishing the coursework for the last class to complete my second master’s degree. Add to that I have been without my Macbook for a month. (I thought there was a hardware issue but it turned out to be nothing.) This post is a brief, personal update for those who continue to pray for me and my family.
Earlier this week I received a phone call from the contact of a church we visited earlier this summer. They are ready to have me come candidate. I will take my family to the church the weekend of November 6. We like this opportunity, which is for the senior pastorate of a small church. I covet your prayers for this weekend. Here is what you can pray for:
- God’s wisdom for both the church and me as we contemplate the future together. Because of our visit earlier this summer, there is not much that would prevent us from taking this opportunity were the church to extend a call.
- Humble preparation on my part. My desire is to accurately communicate who I am and how I would do things were I to pastor this church. My desire is to be a servant to them.
