I started serving as Lead Pastor of High Park Baptist Church on June 1, 2008.
Today is the 1rst day of my 4th year.
I’m thankful for the care and commitment that has been shared between many of us over the last 3 years. You have encouraged my faith to be strong, courageous and resilient (Joshua 1:6-9)!
I’ve been trying to prepare a blog post that answers the question, “So how has the first 3 years in Toronto at HPBC been?” Well, many of you who know me would understand the challenge of summarizing three years, such as these ones, in a few paragraphs. So, I took a photo in Muskoka this morning that felt like it summarized some of the key concepts of the past 3 years. I make a few poetic points below the picture.
White cap waves,
Wind under wings.
Green trees thrive along a rugged rock face.
Sun shines as clouds pass along this place.
What will year 4 hold?
What stories will be told?
How much redemptive gold?
What fruit of my love, so bold?
I can share more lessons learned in person sometime this summer. 🙂
