Dear CBC Family,

In this, my first Spire contribution, I’d like to write for Pam and myself and express how thankful we are that God has brought us all together in this time of transition for your church. Both of us believe that God has called us to this place, certainly not to stay, but to serve you all in this “in between” season at CBC. 

We have enjoyed your welcoming kindness over the last couple of weeks.   Your warmth and love have embraced us in the hours we have shared together.   It is our prayer that our love for the Lord and each other would grow in the weeks to come, that He might be greatly glorified as we journey together toward the coming of your new pastor.

Which brings me to a point that I have already mentioned from the pulpit but want to emphasize again. Please remember, I am not your new pastor. I am the transitional pastor. With the agreement we have set forth with you and your search team, there’s much that I will not be able to do in the time we have set aside each week for me to be there. So that’s the down side of the arrangement. The upside of a transitional pastor arrangement is that when I do or say something you’re not to fond of, remember, I won’t be with you long! I hope that those moments and incidents will be few and far between, for I am convinced this will be a mutually beneficial relationship between us.

My heart was filled with gratitude Sunday as I listened to Lori’s testimony Sunday. The walk that Lori and Damon have been on for the last couple of years is a beautiful example of how God never fails to keep His promises to walk with us and to never leave us or forsake us. 

I’ll try to write more each week, mostly what’s on my heart. And I look forward to seeing each of you Sunday with a Bible in your hand and the love of Christ in your heart. Prepare to come expecting an encounter with the risen Lord!

Blessings to each of you,

In the love of Christ

Transitional Pastor
