Nothing like Good Friends

Monday through Wednesday was the “Annual meetings” for our denomination at Seaside. Mostly pastors, senior pastors, youth pastors, worship leaders, associate pastors, fat pastors, skinny pastors, and a few smart pastors. The meetings tend to be boring but the fellowship with the other pastors was super good. A lot of the pastors I only see once a year at this event so it is always fun to chat for a few minutes catching up on “news”. I really enjoyed my time with Mike Dedera my associate pastor here at JBC. We see each other all the time here at JBC, but driving over together, staying in a motel room together and eating together we had lots of time for good conversations about our vision for the future. Also my son-in-law, Mike Hatfield roomed with us and I had a wonderful time with him talking church and family.

One of my favorite verses is in Proverbs 27:17 “Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another.” This verse is so true for me, the more time I spend with guys who are faithful, hard workers, devoted to the Lord, and in love with Jesus, the more passion I have for ministry. It is such a great gift from the Lord to have really good friends who give me grace as they spend time with me.
