(This is Jessicah: I’m stealing a moment on my husband’s computer to post on his blog.)
On Friday, Chris is going before the Candidacy Committee of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod to seek their approval. He will answer questions about the person and example of the rostered leader, his faithfulness to the Church’s Confession and his own faithful witness to Christ. This is the last step in the candidacy process in the ELCA and as this journey culminates I am so deeply inspired by Chris’ passion for the church and love for the people of God.
He is so excited and so very prepared. As we all know, Chris is a gift to the church and I am delighted that he is at this step so he may continue to live out and into his calling to be a Lutheran pastor.
I love you, Chris. Keep the good faith. And remember that nothing separates us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Let’s send him off together. Please send your love, prayers and support.
Soli Deo Gloria.
