Pastor’s Note 4/16/21

Special Occasions

Milestones and momentous occasions are important to celebrate. Most of us do this in our lives when we celebrate a birthday, gather for a wedding or celebrate the life of someone that has passed away. It is a way to “mark” that important event in a person’s life.
Ancient Israel used to do this by the placement of “standing stones” in certain geographical locations where they met God or an important event took place, like a victory over an adversary or the crossing of the Jordan River as the Hebrew people entered the Promise Land.

Pastor Installation Invitation







This Sunday marks an important occasion for our church. On Sunday, April 18, at 9:30am my Installation Service as the next pastor of Lakeside Community Presbyterian Church will take place. It may seem a bit anticlimactic since I have already been serving as the pastor since November, but it is one of those “standing stone” moments when we give thanks to God for His provision and guidance and ask for His blessing as we move forward together for His Kingdom.

It should be a grand celebration with pastors and elders from the Presbytery of San Diego participating along with many of my family and friends in attendance. We will be having a taco bar lunch after the service so come hungry and help celebrate this next chapter in the life of our church.


Finally, let’s all give thanks to God for His guidance that led to this moment and pray for His blessings, as we move forward together.
Hope to see you this Sunday.
