This blog served its purpose during a time of teaching and transition in our church. Now I intend to make it a means of communicating ongoing observations, comments, and ideas with our church family as well as anyone else who cares to read.
I often feel amazement that God has placed me in the role of shepherding a church like Calvary Baptist of Simpsonville. I identify with this description of David that I read this morning in Psalm 78:70-72. The last sentence is my aspiration and prayer.
He also chose David His servant,
And took him from the sheepfolds;
From following the ewes that had young He brought him,
To shepherd Jacob His people,
And Israel His inheritance.
So he shepherded them according to the integrity of his heart,
And guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.
