Watching the world wake up recently, I was struck with the beauty of a spiders web. It was a large web and yet very intricate. The angle of the early morning light cast a glowing effect on the web. Then to my amazement, I began noticing other webs. Some were more traditional in shape, but the vast majority of the webs seemed to be single threads. I was mesmerized. There were thousands and thousands of threads through out the forest. They appeared to be holding the entire forest together.
My mind began thinking of the church. There are all kinds of folks who make up the structure of the church. some possess an influence that is large and intricate. Others are more traditional. Yet the vast majority of folks are like the single thread. They hold the whole thing together. Our Lord has given each of us the needed ability to be used within our church so we can do the work He calls us to do. It is my hope that together we can continue the work of those who have poured their hearts and souls into this part of God’s Kingdom. We have been blessed by the leadership we have followed. It is my intension to steer us on the course we have been following.
I invite you to join me on this journey. It is an honor to be your interim pastor.
