re-branding

A lot has changed since I've last posted on the ol' blog... Most recently, the World Cup has come around again, BP has spilled a lot of oil in the Gulf of Mexico, Apple has released the iPad and the new iPhone4, and I've been given a new job at Nativity, Missions Director (or maybe Director of Missions - comments welcome). So that means I'll be, in the words of the Pastor, "our first ever full time staff guy for missions and service."

Acts 1:8 (NAB) says,
"But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."

Nativity's missions will be focused on building relationships with local (Jerusalem), national (Judea and Samaria), and international (ends of the earth) organizations where individuals from Nativity can serve and spread the name of Jesus.

So this summer I'll be headed to Haiti with Fr. White in July and then to Nigeria with the Nativity:Nigeria team in August. I'm really excited about these awesome opportunities and especially about all the possibilities for what Missions at Church of the Nativity can become... Look for more [frequent] posts in the near future!
