  8. 8. CHRIST CHURCH DEER PARK FEBRUARY/MARCH 2011A Farewell Message voices soon dropped off, and David finished the prayerfrom Rob Walker alone. I remember thinking to myself: “Oh, please don’t stop! Keep going!” Sometimes, I think the Holy Spirit loves to gently nudge us away from what we expect into something a little odd and always life-giving. You all understand this, because you have such a firm commitment in your hearts to welcoming the stranger and doing justice for people, even when it doesn’t quite seem convenient. Speaking as a lowly ministry student, still finding my feet, it seems to me that God has new places for you to go, despite all the changes and difficulties that lie ahead. Expect good things to happen! Thank you all so much for mentoring me, and I look forward to seeing you again. God “can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine” and I look forward to hearing about what that means for Christ Church Deer Park.
