This is one of AKMA's Flickrphotos. I have been looking around for a way to thank him and Carol McVetty from North Shore Baptist Church for attending our worship service. AKMA, as some may have gathered, served at the altar. Carol was in the pews. I felt her support very deeply.
There is something intangible about the two of them, the way the word is outpoured through them. Is this too high a compliment? Perhaps they would think so, but I am inclined to suggest that it is true in spite of their plausible protestations. I have gained so much from their examples...as clergy, as scholars, as married people and as parents. I feel so very fortunate to know that they are supportive of the church plant. Their very existance only strengthens my resolve to allow for different traditions to speak in one community.
Pax et bonum...peace and all good things to you both.
