I want to take a second before I make the announcement to thank the loyal (all 6 of you 😉 ) readers of this blog who have followed all the developments of theology and my life since I began this blog in December of 2005. I most certainly did not have in mind the changes that would have taken place from that time till today. In 2005 I came under care of the PC(USA) Presbytery of West Virginia for preparation for the Gospel ministry. Now I stand a different and much better man. A man who has reached the end of his official Seminary training preparing to embark to the mission field of the Parish. Due to this call and to this fulfillment of more than 3 years of study and development that has seen my theology change and mature in ways not imaginable in Dec. 2005 I have come to the decision that is at this time I would like to make two announcements.
1) I have been elected to be the new Pastor of the Harvest Reformed Church, a congregation of the Reformed Church in the United States (more info here) located in Minot, North Dakota. I have Classis exams the first week of March and then will begin my work the 5th of April.
2) Due to the above I am going into semi-blog retirement until after my family and I become settled in Minot. After we are unpacked and the work of the Pastorate has begun in earnest I will reopen the blog for discussion and debate as well as organizing a defense of the reformation of the United States and the Church therein which is quickly becoming apostate.
I look forward to seeing you again.
Till then I leave you with these words from Iain Murray…
“”In taking this view [the Puritans] understood at once that all the successes of the Reformation were repeatable-as repeatable as the victories of the apostolic age-for Scripture places no limitation upon the Spirit’s work of glorifying Christ and extending His Kingdom”
— Iain H. Murray, The Puritan Hope
