My last post was to share of our plan to move from my post of 17 years in Michigan to take a staff role at a church in Lakeland FL. Your responses were encouraging per usual. The trip has been bumpy. Florida pastor was hospitalized with COVID/Pneumonia necessitating leaving my lovely wife back in MI while I came down here much earlier than planned to preach for a few weeks. He (thankfully) recovered while she packed up our life in MI (have I mentioned she's awesome?!?). The purchase agreement on our new home in FL was broken by the seller who got cold feet leaving us twisting in the wind but we're blessed to be staying with family while whatever happens next happens...I now have an hour commute to the church. And a bunch of other stuff I won't bore you with, BUT God keeps showing up and confirming that we're indeed obedient to his direction. I've led worship here a few times and have gotten to know some of the volunteers, but I have my first formal-ish meeting with musicians and tech crew this Sunday. I'm hoping you guys can help me with a bit of an icebreaker as you're always down for a bit of good natured skewering of WL types.
