Yesterday was Tom Ryan's last Sunday as the primary interim speaker during our year long transition at Jacob's Well after the departure of Tim Keel our founding pastor. I had the privilege to honor Tom at the end of the 11:00 am service. The congregation graciously gave him a standing ovation. Tom shared this quote in his message today and I think it is quite profound.
has been called
the unforgivable sin—not presumably because God refuses to forgive it
but because it despairs of the possibility of being forgiven." Frederick Buechner
