I have two more Sundays to preach at Metro East Baptist Church. The thought makes me sad. I am confident however in God's good providence not only in leading me to Church of the Savior but in providing a faithful shepherd for Metro East.
Please pray for both churches during these days of transition.
Currently I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with gratitude. We signed a contract on our home just one week after it was listed. It also appears that God has made possible an oustanding opportunity for our housing in Philly.
It is important to understand that God does not always confirm His will by providing pleasant circumstances. Sometimes following God means following His lead into the valley of the shadow of death. But when, for His own good purposes, God makes our path a happy one then all there is to do is bow low and give Him thanks.
