The First 100 Days
Trump has been in office for 100 days, and it is what it is. I am not going to comment on that, but I've been in my new role for 100 days, as well. If you have a few minutes, I would like to comment on that.
First, I feel a massive amount of gratitude for every single person that has stuck with us through transition and has begun to journey with us into our version of a brave new world. I know there are some who would not say they see me as “their” pastor, but have been willing to give me a chance to be “the” pastor of Living Streams Church. I hope in time God will give me opportunities to minister grace to them and their families as they have ministered grace to me and mine.
I also feel a lot of gratitude to God, for the consistent supply of ideas, creativity, and guidance He has been giving me, and our team, as we seek to lead well and love well; and to keep things simple, fresh, and courageous.
I am thrilled to say that we have been able to exceed many of our expectations. We, the board of elders and staff, feel a quiet but strong confidence about the track we are on and the goals we have set our sights on.
Thanks to the Lord's faithfulness, and each person's participation, we have seen people become set free from addiction; we've seen people stand strong in the day of opposition; and we've seen people experience the wonder of sweet salvation. At the same time, the practical measurements of attendance and finances are looking positive, as well.
All of our focus is now turning toward summer. We want this to be a summer full of life, growth and meaningful memories. Please continue to join in on Sundays, as the Lord knits our hearts together into one powerful, unified people who put God's glory on display, live courageously, and engage in society's pain.
