Difficulty. Impossibility. God.

This weekend we have a meeting to look at some ways to address the economic problems of Girdwood Chapel, including the possibility of cutting the pastoral job (mine) to 1/2 time.  That would mean a loss of pay and benefits for the Doepken family.  It could mean a savings of $40,000 per year for the church.  It's a tough discussion, but I think we're going into it knowing that we can talk about it like adults, without blaming or criticizing.

That brings me to today's quote:

“When God is going to do something wonderful, He begins with a difficulty; when He is going to do something miraculous, He begins with an impossibility.”
