You see that pretty (awesome) church in the picture above?
This is the Congregational Church of Amherst, New Hampshire.
They have just over 600 members, a fabulous music program, lots and lots of kids, an active youth group, a dedicated group of volunteers who participate in community outreach, and a heart and soul desire to “welcome, transform, and send” all who walk through their doors seeking God, grace, and the “good news” that none us is meant to stagger through this life alone.
If all goes well, and God willing, on March 11th I will be leading worship in this lovely church and afterward the congregation will take a vote on whether to call me to be their next Associate Pastor.
In the meantime, my life for the next month or so will be immersed in a swirl of packing, purging, planning, prepping, and praying (…with a modest amount of panicking thrown in towards the end).
But as this time of transition passes, I trust, as Julian said:
“All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.”
