Pasadena Christian Church: “Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart”

first_img More Cool Stuff Just Bill‘Give thanks With a Grateful Heart, ‘ is a favorite hymn of mine. Gratitude sets forth a firm backdrop for ministry as I begin partnership with you. The moment I stepped into the Pasadena pulpit, you welcomed me with gracious and loving hearts. I felt this in the depths of my soul. Your energy and your compassionate spirits burst with eagerness and readiness to envision … ‘how we do church!’ A new chapter in our journey of faith has begun – – indeed.First, a few lines of my history! As you know, our ministry is not quite new. I’ve been here before! You may remember when my family and I first arrived in Pasadena in February of 1978. You called me from pastoral ministry with First Christian Church of San Jose. For the next twelve-plus years you became my church home.Since those beginning days in ‘78 and now my return in ‘14, the clock has moved forward – – beyond our imaginings. We live in a world of change, dramatic change. The technological explosion has especially impacted the way in which we live, the way we dress, the way we eat, the way in which we communicate – and even in the way we do church!I return with confidence that together, our ministry in mission here on our sacred corner of Altadena Drive and Loma Vista will stretch forth ‘upon doorsteps to the ends of the earth!’ For empowerment of this call, let’s each one ‘give thanks with a grateful heart’ coupled with faith and conviction . . . blessed by the Holy Spirit!!BillPasadena Christian Church, 789 N.
