(a movement)

An update for the world-

So, recently i was asked to be Payson Christian Church's pastor
which is awesome!

it's a challenge on many levels-
I've never done anything like this before,
at most only guest preached, but it's different now that i have successive Sundays in which to preach. On one hand, all the topical freedom is awesome- but on the other I feel a bit like Im drowning in it, too. I know things will find their rhythm soon- just like creative writing, the hardest part is always the beginning for me, and I just need to start. I want to say thank you to everyone who has and is influencing me along The Way- every little (and big) thought, encouragement, word, experience, action and challenge. Thank you. Tuesday is my church work day, and I can feel the day already dragging on- and even though I know that every day is God's, and so I ought not try to be so possessive of the minutes inside I feel already behind. There's so much to be done- so please pray for us. The feel of fall is coming on now, with the weather cooler, and it's an overwhelming feeling of change surging through existence. Like a new chapter for everyone is slowly syncing across the universe- new things in the breeze- God is up to something exciting and new, and if you get the feeling, if you're in the circumstances, dont be afraid to commit to them- jump in and run with it. God knows the very best for us- above and beyond our preferences, and that is something to become one with. Until we are nothing, our wills gone- replaced with Jesus' glorious freedom and purpose, instead. If nothing else, hold on the hope, the promise, that God is with you now, working with you- trust him from the very core of your being and he'll lift you up at just the right moment- with intricate little workings of a grand symphony of love for you.

Just wait, you'll see...
