Many things to think about! Spring is a beautiful but busy time.
First, let me thank you for all the kind remembrances related to my birthday. It almost makes getting older a good thing when a day sparks that much encouraging communication!
Secondly, May means Mother’s Day. Where would WPBC be if were not for all our dedicated and faithful mothers? They have the biggest job in the world just being mothers and then they are the heart and soul of the church. Thank you and may God reward you mothers for your sweet spirit and your tireless service! I hope we have a house full of mothers and families on Mother’s Day.
And then there is the Alfred Lee Concert. Are you telling everyone you know about our plans for May 22? Dr. Lee will play for us in the Morning Worship Sevice that day and then he will present a concert in our Worship Center at 6:00 that evening. We want the community to be informed and invited. It promises to be an enjoyable and exciting evening for all our neighbors to experience.
Dr. Lee has composed, directed and performed in some of the finest venues in the world, and we are blessed to have him coming to be with us. He will play the keyboard in such a dynamic and skillful way you will think you are listening to a full orchestra, and you will hear amazing renditions of everything from Star Wars to your favorite hymn. You will also be blessed by his sincere and unique testimony. Don’t miss this event, and don’t let your neighbors miss it!
My next concern is the folk I haven’t seen lately. We have had a lot of sickness, and we’ve had people out of town, etc. Sometimes it is difficult to keep up with who is traveling and who is having health or other issues. Please, please make it a point to contact those folk you haven’t seen at church in the last week or two and make sure they are doing all right. We are family and we must stay connected! If you discover someone is ill or hospitalized or dealing with some other difficulty don’t assume others know. Keep us informed.
Finally, I trust you are praying earnestly for your Pastor Search Committee. They are working diligently, and it is absolutely imperative that they find God’s leadership exactly. I know the committee members are praying for that, and we must join them in “seeking God’s face” and asking for His favor in this important matter.
I am looking forward to worshipping with you on May Day!
In Christ’s love,
