That is probably the most frequently asked question I have received this past year. I think most people thought that’s what I would do after leaving TPC. Honestly our lives were turned upside down and inside out so suddenly that I knew that was not the thing to do. Tired, weary, discouraged, hurt, and betrayed were words that described life a year ago.
There have been so many transitions that our family has walked through that it will make your head spin. Now our kids and grandkids are settled in to new churches, ministries, and communities for which we are so thankful. Now Patti and I are really searching for what is next for us in ministry.
I have had lots of different opportunities this past year including working closely with a couple of faith films, Woodlawn and Risen, both great films that are seeking to advance the gospel. By the way, Risen is still in theaters and now would be a great time to take a friend and start some spiritual conversations.
So back to the question at hand…another church?
Right now I just don’t have clarity on that issue so here is what we are going to do. I have really missed teaching on a weekly basis and I have missed the sense of community (big time) that the church provides, so I am going to do a weekly bible study on Wednesday evenings with those who would like to gather together. We will meet in the conference room at Espaces, located at 1550 West McEwen Dr. Suite 300, beginning Wednesday, March 9 at 6:30pm.
This will be open for anyone in our community who would like to attend. We will simply study scripture, pray, and encourage people. So if you would like to be a part come and join us. I look forward to the days ahead and you can keep praying for us to simply follow God’s heart for us.
