First of all, I would like to thank you for warmly welcoming Kathy and me to the Richland Nazarene Church. It has been a delight to meet you and we now have dozens of names and faces floating around in our brains and trying to line them up with the right person. We’ll eventually put them together, but please be patient with us.
Transitions are difficult, I know. As Mark Twain noted, “The only one who likes change is a wet baby”. Like it or not, we are in the midst of change. But we serve the One who changes not, the One who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So, Even though our lives are changing, and leadership is changing in the congregation, we have a sure foundation in Jesus Christ, the chief cornerstone of the church.
So, let’s trust Him to lead us where we need to go, and let’s have fun on the journey. Live with our eyes wide open to see the marvelous things the Lord is doing in this time of transition.
