Last night we had our annual budget meeting. This year, in light of the economy and other factors from this year, our budget is radically different. I didn’t know what to expect going into last night’s meeting; I didn’t know how people would accept or whether they would agree with what was on the budget paper. Amazingly (and I guess I shouldn’t be amazed; I should be thankful to God), only one person had a question (and it was a valid one), and the budget was unanimously approved. I’m grateful for the unity that we have here at Eastridge. I pray that this type of unity will continue in good times and bad, and I hope other churches can experience this same unity.
