Lot’s Going On

Category: All Posts,Random Thoughts – Rose – 8:07 pm

It’s been busy…
Last week my youngest son, Alex turned 10! In eleven days my oldest son Michael turns 30!
Just returned from a retreat in Oregon. Three days was a great time away with Rich and others. Lots of down time and reflection. Good conversations, lots of alone time out in the woods, on a river. God affirmed our path in some pretty amazing ways.
Tomorrow is a big day for VCC (it is the first time since my ordination in 1996 that we have set in someone as a pastor) we are setting Jim Fox in as our associate…
Book recommendation – The Jesus Way by Eugene Peterson
Beginning a new series of teaching tomorrow – taking narratives from Genesis and Exodus through the next few months (until Easter we will be at crossing the Red Sea)…


  1. This is great news, Rose! Please congratulate Jim for us – clearly this is a fine choice!

  2. Hello Rose. I was browsing through the internet and I found your open letter to Mark Driscoll. I was wondering how you were able to argue against certain verses that call for a woman’s silence and not teaching men?
