Today Dibley Baptists induct their shiny new part-time minister. A Scot. A NAM. A man who with his wife has left his home to follow God's call in a 'foreign' land.
I am really pleased that the service is being held in the school hall that has become the meeting place of this little church, with the tea being in held in the school's other hall (fortunate to have two!).
I really pray that this new beginning will be the start of great blessing for church and minister. This is a tiny little church with enormous quantities of grit and determination, a church who put up with my strange ideas about mission and ministry and who will always be part of my story.
God bless you Dibley BC, God bless you P&C, may you each know growth, fulfilment and love in the years ahead.
