I am merry this week because one door has closed and another has opened. You hear a lot about new seasons and fresh starts and changing seasons but it's rare that something physical manifests from it.
With the advent of the new satellite church next week and the decision to go on over and serve there in a new ministry- it can't get much more new season and fresh start than this.
Yes, it'll be scary. Yes, it'll be tough. Yes, tempers will fray, priorities will be questioned and friendships tested. I will conjecture though and say that the very first churches had it a lot more tougher than we will. Hillsong didn't start off as a megachurch either. Riverview didn't always have that huge building and their internal structure from the get-go. FGA from their earliest starts had bickering, trials and dark times and yet we're still going strong. We all had to start from somewhere to get anywhere and that is what's going to get me through this transition period.
I can finally see what they're banging on about when they say that the latter will be greater than the former now.
