What do eggs, flowers, and doughnuts have in common?
People often buy each of them in a dozen.
What did the tribes of Israel and Jesus' apostles share?
They numbered twelve.
For good reason, the number twelve interests me today. (I cannot help but hear the voice of Sesame Street's Count in my head as I write those words.)
Twelve years ago, on June 1st, I began serving as pastor of Rabbit Creek Church. Without exaggeration, I can say that these past dozen years have been some of the best years of my life. While every pastor is biblically instructed to love their church, I love Rabbit Creek with or without receiving instruction to do so. Rabbit Creek is a great church for many reasons. I think it is fitting for me to share twelve.
For those dozen reasons (and more), I love Rabbit Creek Church. So, here's to our church and here's to (Lord-willing) another dozen years together (at least).
