Have you ever felt like you have put on a lot of miles to get your work accomplished? This last couple of months has felt like that for me. It began with a trip to Alaska. Wasilla Alaska to be precise. I had a chance to meet longtime friends and meet new ones at the Yukon presbytery meeting. It had been awhile since I last visited and it was great to be at Yukon's gathering.
Next it is was a time to gather with Olympia presbytery folks at University Place Presbyterian church.
Then I attended the recent Synod of Alaska-Northwest meeting held at the Seatac airport. The Synod meeting was in our backyard (our offices are located in Burien just a few miles from the airport). Each presbytery and their representatives were present. Business was important including adopting a plan to distribute Synod assets to each presbytery.
My last travel was the gathering of North Puget Sound and Alaska presbyteries in Bellingham Washington to officially form the two presbyteries as one. The new presbytery is now known as the Presbytery of Northwest Coast. It was a glorious example of the holy spirit gathering God’s people to journey together as one. Exciting times are ahead for this new presbytery.
