Hello world!

Hello, this is the first ever blog for Upwards Church and its pastor, Darrell Koop (me!)  Times sure have changed during my life.  As a pastor since 1992, 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
