I (Jeff) enjoyed editing this podcast while my oldest son Joel, and I, stayed here at the Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln NE with my middle son Douglas. Douglas is doing really well with rehab. His brother Joel is his most enthusiastic cheerleader, healthcare watchdog, and best friend. Joel communicates with the doctors and staff here with me and mostly for me. I have nothing to worry about with Joel at both my side and Doug's side.
So, while Jonny has recorded the intro and conclusion alone, I am here, in the background, listening and loving what we can provide to you today as a small church pastor. Remember, we are both small church pastors - and we love encouraging you - our small church pastor friends. I love Jonny going solo on this episode. He has done a great job.
Chad Payne, pastor of New Life Assembly of God in Woodstock AL, friended himself into our lives and we are so glad we had this opportunity to talk with him on the podcast. And this episode with Chad Payne, just a faithful, loving small church pastor, who is committed to continued growth and learning, is our gift to you this week.
As most of you know, since my son's accident on October 18, where he sustained a traumatic brain injury, life has been out of my control for the most part. So Jonny and I have been apart now for a couple weeks, but it is nice to know that you all are still with us, and that we can still connect with you.
My many thanks to Jonny Craig and to all of you!
