An open letter to Pinelands

An open letter to Pinelands,

I want to thank you for the honor, privilege and joy it has been and continues to be to be a part of the Pastoral Search Committee. When one expresses how much he enjoys a particular person or group of people, the reply that comes back is "just wait until you get to know him or them." Well, I can tell you that being on a committee like the Pastoral Search Committee (PSC), one gets to know well his fellow committee members as well as the associated church and I just grow in my appreciation of and love for Pinelands, the PSC and our God that so orders our lives.
The process is a lengthy one, but don't lose heart; remember in whom you have believed (as Paul writes in II Timothy 1:12). While our hard times do not compare to those Paul was experiencing, we can agree with Paul in what he wrote in that verse. The entire verse states, "For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day."

I believe God led the congregation of Pinelands to assemble a very special and strategic group of people to be your Search committee with whom I thoroughly enjoy working. None of this should come as a surprise for the committee bears an uncanny resemblance to the congregation as a whole! The following quotation has been made famous by President Truman and Coach John Wooden: "It's amazing how much can be accomplished if no one cares who gets the credit." I think of Pinelands when I consider that saying.
When the going gets tough and even when it's not so tough, let's remember whom we have believed and remain convinced that God is able to guard what we entrust to Him and be quick to give the credit to Him when He accomplishes amazing things through his "broken vessels" here at Pinelands even right now (we do not have to wait for our next pastor; the Spring Festival showed us that! To God be the Glory).

How truly amazing He is!

Our congregation is so blessed to have the PSC that we do. You all truly do
represent us.

Brothers and sisters we have seen in difficult times of not having a pastor
how He has so blessed us in many ways and continues to sustain us. For
example, in our pulpit supply, in additional help from our teaching elders
and our ruling elders, in our diaconate to our congregation members! I
can only imagine when the man God has called comes along, how truly
awesome that will be.

PSC keep encouraged, the church continues to pray and we all know His
timing is perfect!

Your sister in Christ,

Debbie Reed
