Our church voted yesterday (143-0) to pass the family ministry baton from Twila Pulford, serving now for 32 years, to Jon Oettel, a member of Calvary since his youth. She finishes this part of her race, Lord willing, at the end of September. He begins his, Lord willing, on September 3. I am deeply grateful to the Lord for his mercy in this, and am eager to see what he has in store for us as Jon - with Josh Johnson, our student director - envisions the next season of ministering to parents and their kids.

The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. (Psalm 16.6, ESV)
