A New Start

As I have been preparing for retirement one of the many questions I have been wrestling with has been just what will I be doing now that I am no longer a full time employed Pastor. There are many aspects of my work which I will miss. As I reflect upon those things it has become clear to me that the one thing which is central to my work has not changed. This is that I still have a passion for learning and teaching. For many years I have been engaged in intense Bible Reading, study, and meditation upon God’s Word. I have a passion for teaching and preaching which I have been given the opportunity to pursue. I have been a Bible Study leader, a teacher at the Lay Pastor’s Training Program, a preacher, and an evangelist. None of those responsibilities have ended with retirement. I will be seeking to make a new start in each of those areas in the months to come.

I am a soon to be retired pastor living on the north shore of Lake Erie. I have a passion for the Gospel and for the Church. My hope and prayer is to encourage the Church to bear witness to the LORD Jesus Christ. I have served Pastoral charges in Alvinston, Inwood, Strathroy, and Brampton over the past forty years. Now it is time for a new adventure in serving the LORD.

"The most excellent study for expanding the soul, is the science of Christ, and Him crucified, and the knowledge of the Godhead in the glorious Trinity. Nothing will so enlarge the intellect, nothing so magnify the whole soul of man, as a devout, earnest, continued investigation of the great subject of the Diety." ~ C.H. Spurgeon
