Ten days from today I will start my new ministry as the new Senior/Lead Pastor of the Gaylord Evangelical Free Church (GEFC) in Gaylord, Michigan (boy, do we have a lot to do in the next 10 days)! So I thought I would take the next couple of blogs to unveil a bit about me for the sake and benefit of the church family at GEFC so that you could get a running start at getting to know your new pastor. So, this is me - the good, the bad and the ugly.

Since this is only Part 1 - please don't go where I think you might go later this week and share your favorite "sports" teams and I use that word sports very loosely (except for your hockey favorite) Most of GEFC already knows your a Buuckeye fan and I think they still like you despite that...don't ruin that Scott!!

Pastor Scott said...

Ah, Rick - I have nothing to hide. Tomorrow I will not only share my favorite sports teams, I will be so transparent that I will also share my least favorite sprots teams as well!!!!!

David said...

I was ok with the list until you got to Liverwurst with Miracle Whip. There might be something wrong with you.

Pastor Scott said...

David - you just don't know what you are missing. There use to be a place down on route 501 near Lititz called Bubby's Bagels that had a sandwich called "The Lititz Sandiwch". It was liverwurst, roast beef, swiss cheese and onions. I always had them hold the onions. YUM! YUM!

Tiffany Lawrence said...

Rick- amen. :)
I think we need Laura's favorites too- so that when we have the urge to deliver random food baskets we can make sure she has something she will eat as well! :)

Pastor Scott said...

Good idea, Tiffany. I can gaurantee you that Liverwurst will NOT be on her list of favorites!

Carrie Sharpe said...

You definitely will want to list those foods per Tiffany's request... Tiffany is one of the best (and most generous) cooks in our church! You will be blessed (and spoiled!)!! :)

Pastor Scott said...

Hi Carrie! Now that is what I call good information to have! Thanks!!!!!

Tiffany Lawrence said...

Carrie exaggerates, I have a problem with cooking and baking... I really should find some other hobbies! :)
Liverwurst is nowhere near the list of foods i even remotely think of eating, so I'm preeeeeeetty sure it wouldn't be graciously delivered to anyone. ever. I don't even know where to purchase liverwurst!!!! :)
Enjoy all of your stops at Cracker Barrel on your way here next week!

Linda Goodale said...

You missed one. What is your favorite donut? By looking at the list, probably isn't that you don't like. I make a mean liverwurst sandwich. We will have to talk.

Pastor Scott said...

Favorite Donut? It would be a toss up between a good old Jelly doughnut or an Apple Fritter! Too bad they don't make a liverwurst doughnut!

Samuel said...

This is so nice to have for future dinners and music at our place!!
