Thought for the Day: The Apostle Paul was often writing about a desire to visit churches. Don’t you think it was a big deal to receive a letter from THE Apostle Paul with words about a potential visit? Now I don’t want to boost his ego too much in the comparison, but the Rev. Dr. Andy Mangum, our Regional Minister, will be visiting us today in worship. He won’t be preaching, just coming by to say, “Hello!” The SW Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) includes Texas, New Mexico and the Panhandle of Oklahoma. Andy and the Regional Staff have a tremendous task in trying to hold together this large geographic Region, but also the unique needs of all the different churches – from rural, to suburb, to the big cities like Houston. Among their many tasks, the Regional staff trains Commissioned Ministers like Paula, Shiela and Karl. They guide the Ordination process in which Mariah and Tamika are currently navigating. The Regional Staff keeps all us pastors on track with required trainings, while also being left to deal with misconduct issues that are never pleasant. It is a tough job, but we are thankful for all Andy and his staff do on our behalf. Andy will be at the 9am service today.
Prayer: Great God, we are thankful for all those who uplift and strengthen the work of the local church. Bless their ministries, and in doing so, bless the ministries of churches far and near. Amen.
