Retiring from the Clerical Ministry, but not from ministering to People
For the past five years I have cherished answering God’s call into Ministry. I loved being a preacher, a pastor, and minister. I married people, buried people, and each week I endeavored to write a fresh, new sermon that would inspire and possibly convict. I would have loved to have continued in this capacity for at least five more years, but declining health convinced me it was time to retire.
When God calls us, I believe He calls us for life. So, although my “Seeking Holiness” blog has taken a back seat, I will once again pick up my pen and paper (or in this case, my laptop) and use this means to reach those who are seeking hope and try to provide a few words of encouragement.
Join me, each week, as we explore what it means to become an intentional disciple as we seek the holiness that comes only from the one, true and the living God.
Psalms 27:4 (NIV)
4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.

I love that same verse in the Passion Translation. God is so good to us! Thank you
