Today I sat down with our new staff sergeant at our local Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) detachment. Our discussions ranged from drug and alcohol use and abuse in town to the local church.
In this case, the head of our local police was also once a pastor. He also attended an Alliance church previously. There is a possibility that he will attend our church.
As I look over the town, I have had a number of opportunities to sit with our social services people over the last while (believe it or not, police do factor into that whole segment of the professional population). I am enjoying encouraging them in their work and pointing them to God. Perhaps, for such a time as this, I have been called.
Always nice to feel called and to enjoy the call at the same time!
