During the month of November I am working at the Puckety Presbyterian Church here in Lower Burrell. The congregation recently elected the Rev. Kirk Orr as pastor, and I will be providing pastoral care services before he moves up here and starts.
In addition to preaching every Sunday in November and doing some pastoral visitation, I will moderate one meeting of the church's session.
From the pastor's study I look across the church parking lot to the Burrell High School.
It feels good to be back into a weekly work schedule connected to a congregation. In supply preaching my responsibilities have been limited to preparing a sermon and leading worship.
