Landed! New Interim Head of Staff of St. Andrew's Presby. Church, Reporting

After a week long pilgrimage across this magnificent nation--it really is stunning--stopping in Asheville, Jefferson City, Blue Springs, MO and Rawlins, WY, we made it to the land of "milk and honey" in Portland, OR. Yesterday, I preached my first sermon as interim Head of Staff at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Portland, OR.

What was unique was the introduction: Jeremy, our Assoc. Pastor, introduced Dean as my partner, along with my mom Liz Mitchell, before 225 people.  That was a "first": in no other church has my partner ever been recognized. Ever.

Prayers for the pilgrimage ahead.
