New Beginnings…

Mon., Jan. 10/22

New beginnings require transformation. A new job, perhaps a new suit. A new relationship, perhaps a new persona. A new baby, well… far too many things to list here! — Today is a new beginning of sorts for me.

Perhaps you have followed me on my initial blog site, thebrokenrunner.com. If not, have a look. There are now some 870 weekday posts to be found there.

The above site followed a topical pattern throughout each week. They were written while I served as Elder and Assistant Pastor at Lincoln Baptist Church, New Brunswick, Canada. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of each week I focused on some aspect of the previous Sunday’s sermon message. Thursdays were reserved for a rotating sequence of topics related to Discipleship — the growth of a young Christian toward maturity in Christ. On Fridays I responded to reader questions on any matter of Christian life and doctrine.

Toward the end of 2021 health reasons required me to step down from my duties at Lincoln Baptist Church. L.B.C. remains my home church and its members my dearest family in our Lord. But for me it was a time for change. A time for a New Beginning.

Pressing On…” is one such new beginning. Here my format will be freer, posts will be random, on any topic upon my heart at the time. I continue to welcome reader feedback and questions and will be happy to address them. I enjoy writing and expect to post daily, but without guarantee.

A new year marks a time of new beginnings for many people. I hope you will make this a time of personal new beginnings also — in Christ.

“And He that sat upon the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.'” (Rev. 21:5)

Please join me as we “press on” (Phil. 3:12-15) together toward that high calling of God… that “new creation” (2 Cor. 5:17) into which Christ Jesus has taken hold to transform us… indeed to make new all those who call upon His Name.

Press on…

My wife Valerie and I live in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. We have two adult children and, so far, one grandchild. We are members of Lincoln Baptist Church where for a good dozen years or so I served as a part-time assistant pastor. I have been a committed Christian for over fifty years now but, like you perhaps, I am still "pressing on..." I hope you will enjoy your visits here, and be challenged, expanded, and encouraged by what you find. As a believer and servant of the Lord Jesus Christ I count it a privilege that you have stopped by. May we all grow to know and to love Him more each day. Press on...
