I hope you are having a great week. Three things I want you to be aware of going into the weekend.
1. Time change happens this Sunday. You know the drill, plan for one less hour of sleep, but a lot more daylight the next few months.
2. You may have noticed from social media that I successfully defended my dissertation and earned my Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) degree. This would not have happened without the support of CIL. I am so grateful to you for letting me and my family accomplish this.
So what do I want you to call me now? Unless you are taking one of my classes, there is no need to call me Dr. Allison. I do not believe in the term Reverend, as the Trinity is the only one to be revered. According to the Bible, in a congregation, I should simply be called Aaron. However, if you choose to call me Pastor, there is not a greater privilege I could imagine.
3. I am preaching this week from Genesis 12:1-4 on “Walking in God’s Purpose.” Who doesn’t need to hear a message of this importance? Who do you know that needs this message? Invite them to CIL, and we will all grow in love this Sunday.
I love being your pastor!
