    I grew up in a small rural Baptist church just east of Lexington. We never missed Sunday morning

    Sunday School and Worship, Sunday night Bible Study and Worship and Wednesday night Prayer

    Meeting. You planned your other activities around this schedule. When I was young I was really into

    horses and participated in horse shows almost every weekend. Some of these were on Sunday. The few

    times that my parents let me do one of these shows we would load up the trailer with two horses and

    go to Sunday School and then leave to head to the show. We didn’t stay for worship which back then

    was called “staying for preaching!”

    The motivation for this type of commitment is hard to explain but it is easy to explain from the

    perspective of a young kid like me in the 60’s. Guilt. If I didn’t make the church the number one priority

    I felt guilty. And there was always the prospect of those flames that might engulf me in the afterlife.

    Beth has a customer who buys flowers from here at the farmer’s market. He only comes a few times

    during the season but he always buys a bouquet for his daughter in law and the pays for Beth’s next

    customer to get one for free. It’s called paying it forward. A couple of weeks ago he came and did this

    and each time the person learned they were the recipient of this generosity they too would pay it

    forward. I found it interesting that there were different motivations for continuing to pay it forward.

    Most of the young women responding by enthusiastically embracing this idea. They really believed this

    was a worthy thing to do and they wanted to be a part of it. Many others, often of my generation, also

    wanted to continue it but you could tell that they were motivated more by something different. Often

    they would say. “Oh, I can’t accept that. I’ll have to do it too.” Guilt.

    As we start up our new “Program Year” you are going to be asked to make some commitments. Come

    to Sunday School and Worship each week. Participate in Wednesday night activities. Be involved in

    mission projects and other outreach ministries. Bring your children to activities planned for them. And

    come October, make a financial commitment to help continue the ministry of Harvey Browne.

    Of course I hope that you will consider getting involved in the Music Ministry. Finally, you are going to

    take the risk to come sing or play in one of our ensembles. You are going to support the children and

    youth ministries by bringing your kids on Wednesday night for all the wonderful opportunities afforded

    them for spiritual and musical growth.

    I hope you will do this out of a sense of commitment to “Making a Difference by Making Disciples” here

    at HBPres. But, as Beth found out with her flowers, guilt works too. And in the end, the goal is achieved.

    Hope to see ya this fall.

    The Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) is pleased to report to the congregation that the Ministry

    Information Form (MIF) for HBPres, to be used in calling our next pastor, has been completed. It was

    subsequently approved by the HBPres Session on July 25 and then by the Mid-Kentucky Presbytery

    Commission on Ministry (COM) on August 5. The MIF is now in the process of being posted on the

    PC(USA) Church Leadership Connection (CLC) website. The PNC will then receive Personal

    Information Forms (PIF)s for consideration from qualified candidates that match our criteria and by

    self-referral.

    We know God has a plan for HBPres and will help us as we go forward together in Christ’s name.

    Please help by keeping us in your prayers. Thank you.

    PNC Members:
