On Wednesday night I was invited to speak for the summer series at Hartsville Pike church of Christ. I worked with this congregation for two years. When I left, I was ready to go. I was not sure how effective I was with the congregation. But looking back I realized I had a good impact. The congregation grew because of my ministry to some young couples and to young people in the housing projects in Gallatin. I did not do what the typical young minister does, which is to develop programs for the church kids, but I reached out into areas of the community that were untouched by the congregation. Some people embraced this vision of ministry and others did not. Last year when I was at the congregation I was nervous, but this year it felt like home. I felt great to be there and see the people again. Everyone was so loving and kind. Time and distance allows us to see clearly one another. There are a ton of great people in the congregation, and it was nice to hug them again.
