Today, I said my goodbyes at church. I’m really going to miss the folks at Berean Bible Baptist; it’s such a warm and closely knit church community. In the short time I was there I made friends with many of the participants at the young workers’ bible study group (one of whom was my travel agent!), and I grew to admire our pastor for his strict (but non-tyrannical) efficiency and biblical staunchness. Even if I didn’t agree with him on certain issues (viz. successionism, altar calls, “bible wines”), I certainly appreciated his powerful preaching and solid grounding in the essentials of the faith.
I’ve been richly blessed by this church, and I pray God leads me to a good Reformed Baptist church in Maryland.
Which reminds me: I haven’t packed. Argh. And I am completely unprepared for the weather there. I need to get some long johns and sweaters.
Two days to go. Panic.
