I’m starting a new category today called ‘The Forward Look,’ a subcategory of Church Notes. Often people ask me what kinds of things are happening in various committees at church. Sometimes I am looking for additional ways to get info on advance plans out. I find at times people tell me they would like to feel they are on the inside track. In fact, I considered calling this category ‘inside track’ but felt it sounded too elitist. I want it to be informative, not exclusive. People who sign up for this feed can get the advance news about plans in progress without being distracted by other posts. This new title also reminds us that as we celebrate all that God has done in the last 50 years, it is crucial that we look ahead and plan for the future under the Holy Spirit’s guidance. I hope readers find this category helpful.
