Forgot to mention

I never wrote that Eric isn’t coming to our church. We never heard back from him after my dad appealed to him. I guess it was never “official” that he wasn’t coming because he never replied. That’s why I guess there was no moment when we could say for sure, “Now we don’t have an EM pastor.”

What’s with people not replying to emails? I’ve had a few times when I sent an email or Facebook message, something that required prompt response, and ended up never getting a reply. It’s very disrespectful, especially in this context, an older pastor asking a potential candidate for ministry for a response.

One other reason I haven’t felt the need to update is because I feel okay with the current state of things. I feel content for the most part. Some things I struggle with, and I don’t think I’ll write them now…I’m not in the mood. But I have decided to bear this responsibility with a willing heart, not a grudging one. Such is the life of a PK, to be the “default” during times of need. I’m just thankful that God had prepared me before bringing our ministry to this place. I’m still far from qualified, and I still worry about the unity and spiritual maturity of the group and whether it will grow without a leader around. But I am willing to learn to love Living Exodus.

Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith…Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you. — Hebrews 13:7, 17
