Passing the Mantle

At the invitation of Pastor Wayne Montgomery, Jenny, Liz and I attended worship at Abilene First United Methodist Church. (We came in late, but not as late as Wayne had told us to, and not late enough to completely avoid rather than merely evade detection). At the end of the service, Wayne invited us down and transferred the mantle of authority to Jenny and me. This meant a lot to us, and we’re glad Wayne thought of it. We’re looking forward to officially beginning our appointment and starting our pastoral duties tomorrow.
