To my friends in the Marion District,
This morning I am sitting at my desk looking at pictures still on the floor waiting to be placed on the walls, and I think of all the times I have moved into a new office in a new place throughout the thirty years I have been in ministry. I picture Meri Lyn at the district parsonage, wading through the boxes that still need to be unpacked, adjusting to another home. And I realize that I am experiencing many of the same emotions that come with each move – a mixture of nervousness and excitement. But with each move the nervousness becomes a little less and the excitement grows, because over and over God has proven to be faithful, the Christian community we have moved into has been filled with people we come to love, and the opportunities for service have always been rich and meaningful. The welcome that we have already here received in so many ways has confirmed in us the conviction that this will be a wonderful home and a great place for ministry.
So Meri Lyn and I are excited to be here in the Marion District. Many of you we already know, and we look forward to working with you. Others we will come to know, and our lives will be blessed by new friends and co-workers. To all of you, we are glad to be here and look forward to the ministry that lies before us. May God grant us all a new measure of joy and strength and peace, that the Kingdom might be seen in us and through us.
District Set-up Meeting: Tuesday, August 11, 2015, 6:30pm at Latta UMC, 306 N Marion St, Latta, SC 29565
