Today I have been at Baptist House, experiencing the process through which God helps churches that are looking for Ministers and Ministers that are looking for churches to find each other. The process is thorough and requires in depth knowledge of both the churches and the Ministers to work well.
I reflected to myself that my name has been through this process a couple of times now, and felt reassured now that I have seen the process from the other side that it is much more spiritual and thoughtful than ‘drawing names out of a hat’.
I am now on the train on my way home, which is why this is a short bloggage – don’t want to use up all my mobile data allowance in one go! But if you are in the system, or your church is, or you know someone who is, encourage them that godly men and women are on their side trying to help them.
And if you are in the Eastern Baptist Association this has re-affirmed to me the importace of getting to know you well so I can serve you better. Coffee anyone?
Be blessed, be a blessing.

One thought on “brief”
If I were 40 years younger I would definitely be interested in serving a Baptist congregation in Britain. But, at age 67 this “Yank” had better stay on the left bank of the “Big Pond” May God lead you as you serve him in a new way! Rev. Sid Rodriguez Clarksville, VA, USA
