An Empty Office, A Full Heart

As I pack boxes of books and take my children’s art projects off the walls in preparation for the move to San Diego and a new ministry, the office is empty but my heart is full.

I remember the first time I entered the office, it was empty then too. I wasn’t quite sure what needed to be done or what was expected. Eventually the office was filled with art, books and memories of hard conversations, tears, laughter and expectancy.

As I mentioned on Sunday to the congregation of Bethel church, it has been a joy to be surrounded by such a wonderful staff of servant ministers. They work hard, care deeply and love Jesus. Their passion for people and their ministries often has to overcome difficult situations and they live in community with each other with such grace.

“They will know you by how you love each other.” I love this staff. I will miss them.
