message in a bloggle

1st of all I very humbly accept your calling me as your pastor and servant leader. My heart longs to be with you, but for now we will both have to wait. Hang in there, God has great plans for us. Epic-Adventure plans that are greater than you can imagine. Like waiting in line for the roller-coaster; each moment brings us closer to the coming thrill.

While we are in line waiting, here’s what I’d like you to do. I’d like you to read my blog.

Why have I started a blog? To answer that I have to ask what it means to be a pastor, as I see it in the Bible. The primary pastor I see in the Bible is the apostle Paul. Church planter; theologian, and architect of the revolution. What Jesus did through him is the template I always try to lay my life before so that the Spirit can make me more like Jesus by making me more like Paul. Paul was crazy enough to say “follow me as I follow Christ.”

In so doing I get to enter into a new phase of pasturing I have never entered into before. Paul had to write letters to churches he couldn’t be at all the time. The Epistles, books in our Bible like Corinthians and Galatians were simply letters to friends he had to pastor from far away.

That’s where I am at for a season. Where we are at for a season. So I am asking you to read them because for now they are all I have to touch you with besides prayer. I am going to spend 2 hours every day really thinking and praying about what to say and I truly believe it will matter in the short term and long term.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. And every time I write my heart is being more fully rooted in you. I would humbly ask that you try to read at least some of them and unite your heart with mine. There is room for comments and my e-mail so start talking with me as you feel led.

Your pastor,
