I CANNOT CALL YOU FRIEND! – CAC Friday Communique for 8/27/2010

Greetings, Fellow Harvesters of CAC!

In response to requests for this poem–which we read at Tuesday PM’s service–I’m posting it here for you.

Don’t forget, although this is a 5th Sunday month, SERVICES ARE AT NORMAL TIMES, 10:00 AM & 6:30 PM. (We traded this one for the breather after MHCR 2010).

–Author Unknown…
My friend, I stand in judgment now.
And I feel that you are to blame somehow.
On earth I walked with you day by day.
But never did you point the way.
You knew the LORD,
In His truth and His glory.
But never did you share the story!
My knowledge then was very dim.
You could have lead me safely to Him.
You taught me many things,
This is true.
I called you friend,
And I trusted you.
But I have learned,
And now it is too late
You could have kept me from this fate,
We walked by day,
And talked by night,
And yet you showed me not the light.
You let me live and love,
You knew I would never live on high.
Yes, I called you friend in life,
I trusted you through joy and strife.
And yet on coming to this end, —

This is a wake-up call. Let’s make it a weekend of communicating the things of God to those who call us their friend.

God bless His devoted Harvesters!

Sincere shepherd-love,

Pastor D. E. Haymon II

Senior Pastor Don Haymon II began his journey as a minister when he was raised in the home of the founder of Calvary Apostolic Church—his father. In 1986 he concluded a four-year internship under his father as associate pastor. It was at that time that he received his ordination certificate as a minister of the gospel. He married LaRonda Ellard, in 1992. He earned a bachelor of arts in Communication from the University of Denver the same year. In 1997, Don became senior pastor. In 2013 he graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Christian Leadership from Hope International University. Today, he is the passionate shepherd of Calvary Apostolic Church of Denver, guided by a compelling and true call of God. For those in his pastoral care, he seeks personal development and spiritual growth as a priority. His preaching and teaching has taken him around the world to at least 10 countries. Under his leadership, he has founded six churches in Burma. The challenge of communicating the Acts 2:38 gospel worldwide remains his heartbeat as well as the constant growth pattern of the local church in Denver. He and LaRonda are the parents of three grown children. They reside in Castle Rock, CO.
