YIB (Your Intrepid Blogger) will be reporting later this week and next from the left coast.
First up is the Fellowship Council, which is meeting at Seal Beach, California, enjoying the hospitality of Pastor Donald Shoemaker and his fine church. The Council includes the elected reps from around the country, as well as the four moderators (one present, one past, two future), and Tom Avey, Fellowship Coordinator.
Friday is the designated “National Organization Day” when those of us from cooperating national organizations will bring reports and updates to the Council. Also on the agenda is the consideration of new churches seeking to join the Fellowship–there are about six on the list thus far.
Saturday and Sunday I’ll be at the Seal Beach church doing some seminars in communication for church leadership and presenting the ministry of BMH.
Then Monday through Wednesday is the Southwest Focus Retreat, led by moderator Tim Boal, when we will be considering biblical definitions of “church.” We’ll be meeting at San Juan Capistrano.
According to my calendar, it was one year ago today that Tom Avey had his suprise heart bypass operation in southern California. Aren’t we grateful for God’s mercy and healing power?
