Sunday, September 28, 2014: "At 27 Who Knows What Lies Ahead" - Rev. Dr. David Sammons
Our Minister Emeritus, the Rev. Dr. Dave Sammons, was just 27 when he began his journey in ministry with only a novice’s idea of what to do along the way. Now, almost fifty years later, he’s letting go of the active parish ministry, having finished a stint as a seminary prof and doing interim ministries in Colorado and San Francisco. Most of what he did along the way was fulfilling, including his twenty plus years here at Mt. Diablo. But the time came to let that ministry go, and then the others he’s done. How do we let go of something that’s satisfying, like these ministries of Dave’s, especially when we don’t know what lies ahead? Letting go may not be easy, but it’s often what we’ve got to do.
