Holding Space for Transformation

September 11, 2022


It is good to be here with you all this morning. As I look around the room, I see many familiar faces and feel a sense of kinship here at Berkey Avenue Mennonite Fellowship. It is an honor to be here with you today on this day in which you mark the installation of Billy Funk to your pastoral team.  As an introduction, I am Eric Frey Martin, I live here in Goshen, I currently work at Mennonite Mission Network, and attend Silverwood Mennonite and have known Billy for 12 + years.

The first time I met Billy, he cried.

And as someone who is fairly uncomfortable with most expressions of emotion, I wasn’t really sure what to do with that.

And besides that, it was job interview.
