On Beginning Our Tenth Year Together
Here at St. Andrew UMC
Recently, Dr. Jim Lowry, Our District Superintendent for the Atlanta-Marietta District, informed me that I was being reassigned to St. Andrew for a tenth year!
I consider it a great honor and privilege to be your Sr. Pastor here at St. Andrew! Thank you for your love, prayers and support during these last nine years. Jeannine and I look forward to this next year as we work with you and in partnership with Terry and Mary and with our Lord to spread the gospel! I want to share a poem with you, written by an unknown Confederate soldier. It’s entitled, “Prayer.” I include it for your meditation:
“I asked God for strength, that I might achieve, I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey. I asked for health, that I might do greater things, I was given infirmity that I might do better things. I asked for riches, that I might be happy, I was given poverty, that I might be wise. I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men, I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God. I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life, I was given life, that I might enjoy all things. I got nothing that I asked for-but everything I had hoped for. Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered. I am among all men, most richly blessed.”
God Bless You, God Bless All of us as we serve Christ at St. Andrew!
