FROM THE DESK OF PASTOR CHRIS
Hello, Liberty Family!
I’m writing this sitting in my home office looking out at a beautiful winter wonderland. The only downside, I suppose, is that school is cancelled, and I’m also writing this with kids all around! I’m thankful for this beautiful and wonderful life God has given me.
This weekend two great things are happening! First, I’ll officially be installed as Liberty’s new Pastor with a celebration to follow. The service begins at 4:30pm and should be a holy, joyous affair. One of my best friends will be preaching (a pastor from Pittsburgh), guests from our larger presbytery will be there, and there will even be an anointing with oil (when is the last time you saw that!). I’m not supposed to know this, I think, but the reception looks amazing, and a harpist will be there, too!
Second, don’t forget about Sunday morning! I’ll be preaching on Paul’s amazing prayer at the end of Ephesians 1 where he asks that the same power that rose Jesus from the grave would act in us as well. What an ask! My two trusty comrades in worship (Pastor Julie & Steve Banks) are away—one at a continuing education conference in Birmingham and the other in Cancún. I won’t tell you which one is where, but I know God is filling them up with exactly what they need! May God do the same for you…
