Introducing "The Vine"

Our future church plant "The Vine" now has a new logo. Our community website ( and support website ( are not yet operational, but should be up in about a month.

For those who are wondering, the name is based on John 15:5....

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

Review of Priorities

1. Relationship with God
2. Husband, Father, and Friend
3. Pastor and Elder at Parkview
4. Church Planter (Preparation for planting in June 2010)
5. Seminary Student
6. Blogger

Whenever the upper priorities grow in scope, the lower categories diminish. Needles to say, this is why my blogging will likely decrease in frequency this year. I know the Lord will be teaching me a lot this year, but also know the intensity of life will likely keep me from maintaining some of the extra things I would otherwise enjoy (like blogging). Please say a prayer for me as I learn to be content with unending task lists and try to keep the main thing the main thing.
