Hello world!

Hello, this is the first ever blog for The Ridge Fellowship and its pastor, Darrell Koop (me!)  Times sure have changed during my life.  As a pastor for the past 18 years, my primary means to communicate to the most people was through live teaching on Sunday mornings.   Yes, thanks to God this method is still effective, but since I believe communication is so vital I hope to be able communicate in other ways.   

I am reminded of a the story of a Sunday morning in a rural church where due to weather only one man showed up.  The pastor said, “friend I guess we should just go home since no one else showed up.”  The man who was a rancher said, “Pastor if I go out to feed the cows and only one shows up I STILL feed him.”  ‘Ok’ the pastor said.  So he preached his ENTIRE sermon.  After it was over the rancher said, “Pastor, when only one cow shows up, I don’t dump the ENTIRE load of feed on him!”    

That’s often what I do, try to dump everything I have studied all week  on people at one time !  Sunday especially.   Hopefully with this blog, I am able to spread out the feed ie. – info, scripture, commentary, illustrations, statistics, studies, ect.  over the week.    Here’s to a more stable flow of info.  Darrell
