Today is my first day back to the office.
What an incredible blessing this sabbatical has been. It was great to spend so much time with Kathy and the kids. It was great to read, rest, reflect, and recharge.
I am deeply grateful to Creekside Church and the Elders and Deacons who saw the great benefit of extending Sabbaticals to the pastoral staff. Working in the Church is an incredible joy but there a lot of things that can wear a person down. This sabbatical came at just the right time.
So thank you Creekside for your generosity. Thank you for your prayers and support. Thank you for loving my family. It was great to come to the 6pm service last night and to see my church family, to see some new faces, to worship together, to celebrate communion together. I missed you all so much.
I’m looking forward to what’s next for Creekside. And I’m honored to be part of the journey!
