If you know folks who have been staying away from Shepherd during this interim period, for whatever reason, or whose attendance has been spotty, please reach out to them with a phone call or personal conversation and invite them to show up on Sunday. This would be a good time to jump in again and resume active participation in SOV.
There will be a special Council meeting Thursday night so our leaders can meet the candidate. I will not attend that event. And I’ll keep a low profile between services on Sunday. This is the time for the candidate to be the center of attention. I’ll do my part to help that happen. I trust you’ll do your part by showing up and joining in these activities designed by the Call Committee to help SOV call its new shepherd. May God bless these meetings and conversations, and may God’s Holy Spirit rest upon the congregation as it enters into this crucial time.
