Come and See

July 1, 2022

What are you looking for?
…Come and see.
~John 1:38-39

I am writing to you from the General Assembly of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship in Dallas,
Texas. This has been the first in-person General Assembly since 2019 and it has truly been a
wonderful week of fellowship and encouragement. I along with members of Parkway have
joined with hundreds of fellow Christians from around the world to worship, study, pray and
Over these last several days, our field personnel have shared their joys and sorrows as they
minister across the globe. I have heard beautiful stories of grace and provision. I have heard the
report that together we have raised over $1.1 million for Ukraine relief work. This week I
completed my term as chair of the missions council and have found so much life in the work of
our fellowship as we grow beloved community with and through each other.
The theme of our week here together has been Come & See. When Jesus first encountered those
who would soon be his disciples, he asked them “What are you looking for?” He then called on
them to “come and see.” Those brave souls would leave everything behind and follow Jesus
through storms and audacious miracles; through death and glorious resurrection. The decision to
come and see would be transformational.
I wonder, Parkway family, “What are you looking for?” You see, I know a guy, and he does the
most amazing work, offers the most amazing love. I would love for you to come and see. You
will walk through storms and witness miracles; you will witness glorious resurrection if only you
will follow. It will truly be transformational. God is at work among us, don’t miss out …come
and see!
Grace and Peace,

Pastor Caroline
