My Second Ordination…On Facebook

Taking a long walk with the D.S. today to talk about my future as a pastor in the New England Conference. It is not as obvious as it was in 2004 when we arrived. Prayers are appreciated.

    • Dawn ChesserGosh, Doug, things are tough all over as they say. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Keep me in yours as well! The UMC is surely not the same denomination as it was in 2004.

    • Bert ScottI took a pretty wandering journey in ministry, but every turn in the road led to new discoveries and friends. “We will get there, heaven knows how we will get there.”

    • Nancy R SmithLeaving the only pastorate I have ever had to find my own deacon appointment, I identify with the insecure and floundering feelings of not knowing. Peace to you brother and may God’s grace enfold you.

    • Diane FosterWhether in a traditional forum or not, you will always be a minister Doug. The question isn’t if, but how your ministry will continue. Trust God’s plan. “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances.” (I Thess 5:16-18) Much love as you make your decisions.

    • LaRaine Porter RichardsI have never met a pastor before or since you that was able to touch me and relate God’s Word the way that you did when you were in Chicago. I send my prayers to you and I know that God will keep using you in ministry. Your gifts are too great to not be used.
