City Road family and friends,
To say that the past month has been eventful for me is a bit of an understatement! The loss of my father the first of March and my health scare this past weekend certainly have come with their challenges. What I know beyond a shadow of a doubt is that those challenges were made easier through your support and prayers in the midst of it all. Part of the value of Christian community is knowing that we are not alone when life throws us some trials and tribulations. You live that out for me on a day by day basis, and I can’t thank you enough for your love and support during the past couple of years as I cared for my father and through my own health struggles.
One of the great gifts that God gives us is the seasons of life. For the past couple of years I’ve gone through a difficult season, and while I continue to grieve the loss of my dad, I also look forward to a new season where I’m less distracted as I work with and among you. God continues to be with us, and I believe is still before us as we work together to discern God’s will for our church. More than ever we have to draw closer together in Jesus as we walk through the wilderness toward the promised land. Seasons come and seasons go, and our task is to look forward to the Spring to come.
Thanks again for all your love and support.
