I don’t know what nine months of pregnancy is like, but I do know what nine months of praying and seeking God’s will is like. And come sometime tomorrow, I will share with you what exactly that is, so stay tuned.
I’ve been waiting for this for a few weeks now.
I didn’t have a doubt!
(And what a tease at the same time!) Looking forward to reading all about it.
Yeah, I am looking forward to sharing about it. I would say it is the most important decision I have made since asking my wife to marry me.
Looks like Tom broke the news for you: http://www.founders.org/blog/2008/03/brister-accepts-call-to-grace-in-cape.html
I wish you the best in your continued ministry. I realize it will be difficult to leave UPS behind with the significant joy you’ve found in sharing your faith there, but I’m confident that God will open great doors for you in Cape Coral.
Yep! Congrats or should I wait? It’s fun knowing an insider and then waiting.
Grace to you,
I am just curious how big the “insider” group became over this long period of time. So I guess this is not news after all.
Yeah, I wanted to wait until Tom had the opportunity to make it public first. Leaving UPS will be a very difficult thing for me indeed. While I will not miss the lack of sleep, I will miss the friendships I have developed with both Christians and non-Christians. There is yet much work to do, and I am excited to see that in my church (Ninth and O) a desire to develop a strategy to evangelize the lost and establish new believers in a local church context. Over the next month or two, I will be helping to teach and develop a missional mindset among other UPSers and Christians in the workplace which I am excited to do.
Thanks for your kind regards. I am a dreamer and have many things in my heart already for Cape Coral.
This “insider” was no group I assure you. It was very, very small. I didn’t know anything ahead of time just in time. I was excited for you when I first heard you were going to preach and interview.
Drop me an email if you want.
Well, I was totally fine with people knowing (trust me, very few people in my life outside the blogosphere did not know about this!) . Thanks for sharing your excitement with me, and I look forward to talking with you soon.
