Today was a day of mixed emotions for me. It was all about change. Today was Pastor Andy’s last day leading worship. It also marks the announcement of our new worship leader. I’m excited and encouraged at Andy’s faithfulness to follow God, and sad at what I can see as a loss for now. I’m also very excited for our new leadership and have huge hope for the future.

I still tend to fear change initially, but I’ve also come to recognize that most of the best growth in my own life has come as the direct result of a change that I resisted at some point. We will continue to serve God the best we can, regardless of where we are or who God has placed us there for.
