Pastor Bill's Reflections…

“When you search for Me, you will find Me; if you seek Me with all your heart, I will let you find Me, says the Lord.” Jeremiah 29:13-14.

Read Jeremiah 29: 1-14

I’m back!!!! Yes, I had a great Sabbatical. It is okay that most people are asking: “How was your vacation?” when it was much, much more than a vacation. It was a time of searching for me and a time of Sabbath I had not had in 35 years of ordained Ministry.

Lynne and I had the opportunity to reconnect for an extended time, to spend time with family- children and their spouses, our grandson, our siblings and their families. We got to take two amazing trips of a lifetime: one to Scotland as we sought connection to family ancestry and my Presbyterian heritage; and another to the four corners of Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico to experience the wonders of God’s creation so different from our North Carolina roots

I first want to say thank you for this opportunity. Six years ago, when I came to be Pastor of this church I appreciated the vision of the Pastor Nominating Committee and the Congregation to make it a part of my Call to include this opportunity. Thanks to all who stepped up to be the church with the Pastor gone and to embrace Pastor Jerry in his Part-time role as Interim. Thank you for being faithful in your attendance and giving of your time, talent, and resources. You will never know how appreciative we are for this experience.

Since last fall the Session and Ministries of the church have been in a discernment process to seek where we might be led by God in the next 5 years or so. This Sabbatical came at a time when I needed a period of personal discernment. The Session began a study in January of a book: Helping Your Church Rethink Its Mission and Practice: Sailboat Church by Joan Gray. So now we continue our searching process and realize as we seek God we will find Him and He will lead us. He will blow the wind of His Spirit into our lives to show us the way. So much of what we worry about is already taken care of by God.

We each have a distinct purpose in our call by God and I feel privileged to be your Pastor as we continue to walk this journey of faith together. On September 18 after worship I will share with you a piece of my journey. Hope you will join us.

Hope and Peace to you all,

Pastor Bill
