i’m thankful for my time at Preston Ridge, but the time has come to go. i have learned and loved much here. God is leading me on an amazing journey and i’m excited to what He has for me. my office is packed. going to my garage for a bit, until the next leg of the relay get’s it’s handoff. i want to say thanks to the band, A/V team, vocalists, choir, children, and creative team, it was a blessing to partner with you in ministry. Thanks to the staff and many friends that we have made over the last two years. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said “Faith is taking the first step when you can’t see the rest of the staircase.
i love ancient modern worship and this benediction struck me, so i close today’s blog with this.
May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships, so that we may live deep within our hearts.
May God bless us with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that we may work for justice, freedom and peace.
May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation and war, so that we may reach out our hands to comfort them and turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless us with enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in this world, so that we can do what others claim cannot be done.
