125,600 minutes x 2


I have been hear for two years. I am currently entering my third summer and just finished my second winter. I was thinking about people that I have met since I've been here and how they have moved and gone to better neighborhoods (most of them) or bigger houses and then I started thinking about all the people that have come and gone to do ministry here in Charlotte and it's been much like the people in this hood. A lot of people have come in to do ministry, stayed for some time and then left somewhere else. Some people didn't have a choice in leaving, summer assignments don't last forever but even beside TWC students this has been a very transient neighborhood with very transient 614 leaders. The people that we ministered to when I first arrived are not at all the same people now. The first leaders of 614 (Rob and Heather) Charlotte are not the same leaders that now (Travis and Leo) and could be changing again after several months. That seems very peculiar to me. Your thoughts? Anyone...anyone...Beuller anyone...

those are hard questions my friend. i appreciate that you've got the guts to ask them. it's hard for me not to be biased, considering my role at 614 Charlotte, and i'm certainly trying to tame the need to justify or defend the decisions that have shaped the past 2 years. I will say that I am optimistic about the possibility of an officer being appointed to that community. It is important for God's people to walk alongside others for as long as is needed - we walked there as long as we could, and the same with you, the Castles, ME, JR, AWW and so on (and so on...there where a lot of us coming and going indeed) I am glad that when our time drew to a close that we had to trust that God didn't do 'all of this' for it to just fall to the ground one day and wither away.
