In the last week or so I have received a gracious outpouring of support from members in the PCC family. I’m not sure if it was coincidence, or that October is Pastor Appreciation Month, or that is was a response to my blog post about being hurt (and this church-hopper issue that I constantly deal with).
At any rate, a good number of people have been very encouraging to me and seem to be happy with the position I have taken (to challenge users, posers, consumers, and their immaturity) and to lead this church towards better health.
I received an encouraging letter from Richard and Liz Henderson.
A group of members (who were out of town over the weekend) called me, put me on speaker phone, and simply communicated their support.
Last Sunday morning, I had no fewer than a dozen conversations with people who wanted to know more about what I wrote, and communicated their unwavering support.
And this morning I arrived at the office and there was nice gift waiting for me at the door.
I could go on and on, but you get the jest of what I’m saying. There are a lot of good people at PCC who love their church. They are committed to this body of believers.
For this, I am thankful. I am very encouraged.
