Inspired by the Crash

30 May

I’ve got to confess something to you … As pastor of a church, you deal with a bunch of different things.  Lately we’ve had too much death at Ebenezer.  But, you never know what you will face.  You never know how people will respond to change.

And I am SOOOO proud of our Youth Ministry right now.  Specifically of our YOUTH.  Our new Associate Pastor/Minister of Students, Nathan Neighbors, began his ministry at Ebenezer on Sunday.  And our youth have responded with a great sense of love and anticipation for what God is going to do!!

It’s tough to go through a year like they have faced.  Justin, who was and is much loved, resigned after 7 and a half years to follow God’s call to another place.  As much as our kids love him, they really wondered if they could love someone else that much.  This week, they proved to me that their hearts are in the right place.  They have welcomed Nathan with open arms!!  And, as a pastor, that makes me so proud!!!

Now, it’s time to pray.  Pray for Nathan as he begins this new tenure.  Pray for our youth, as things are already ramping up for them to find their place building the kingdom of God.

And we could ALL learn a lesson about how resilient and open to God these kids are …
