Well I finally finished up with my school project and I am thankful that it is finally over. It may be awhile though before I get up to speed with posting again, especially with Christmas coming up. Since my school project took an extraordinarily large amount of my time and energy, I have not had much time to spend with my wife and kids, so we are making up for lost time.

I want to start writing some articles on the biblical role of a pastor and what constitutes a healthy church. Since our church is currently in the process of looking for a pastor, this subject is near and dear to my heart. I believe our church is at a critical turning point, and I hope the events of the last thirty days are going to be a wake-up call and an opportunity to get serious about biblical ministry. I am not going to go into details right now, but this month has certainly been rough. I see many glaring weaknesses in our church that I have been warning many about for the past few years, and I think that we are seeing the result of not sticking to Scripture in our approach to ministry. There has been a continual drift toward pragmatism and in particular, an influx of the influence of postmodernism. I certainly hope that there will be a correction that will lead us back to a biblical model for the church. We are in dire need of a well seasoned pastor who is serious about the Word of God. I just hope that all who are involved in the process of the search take things from a biblical standpoint. I know that there are several godly men who love God’s Word who are involved in this decision, but I also question the wisdom of some others. I hope that you will keep us in your prayers as we go through the process of searching for a pastor. Please pray that the solid, biblically grounded men will have a strong influence in making the right choice.

Hi Eric,

I will pray for your church leadership and it's search for a new pastor right now.

Merry Christmas, brother!
