First let me say that I am honored to have been blessed by being appointed by Bishop Park as your Pastor. I have already experienced some of the great Waggoners Church hospitality and I look forward to serving Christ with you.

On the 10th Anniversary of his consecration as Bishop, St. Augustine preached, “I am fearful of what I am for you, but I draw strength from what I am with you. For you I am a bishop, and with you I am a Christian. The former designates an office received, the latter the foundation of salvation.” I could say much the same about being a Pastor. It is an awesome responsibility. But I am comforted that with you I bear the name of Christ as a Christian, and together we can share in proclaiming, living and sharing the love of Christ with others.

This is a tender time for many of you. I know Pastor Tim gave excellent leadership for many years. Let us pray for his continued success in a new setting. Likewise, I ask your prayers for the wisdom and strength to be a good Pastor at Waggoners Church.

I look forward to meeting you when I begin my work at Waggoners Church on July 1. And I pray that we might be faithful to Christ and His church by helping each other to stay in love with God, loving all God’s children, and being a blessing as God has blessed us.

Grace and peace for a beautiful July.

Pastor Rick Denison
