Our speaker this Sunday is Dr. Chip Hardwick. For the past few years he has been a key leader at the headquarters of the Presbyterian Church USA. For the past 38 years he has been a friend. Holly and I have watched him grow from a leader in a youth group to a leader, first in business and then in churches and a denomination. We have seen God at work in his life in joy and in tragedy. What a joy it has been to be in the cheering and praying section as Chip follows Jesus so faithfully.
The prayer we are praying together is “Dear Lord, change me and use me. Change and use Union Church.” God will change and use your life. Chip is but one example of what our Lord can do in a life. Let’s keep praying and let’s be open to how God chooses to answer that prayer in our lives.
