Some people may call it “fate” or “karma” or “just being in the right place at the right time.” But for Gordon Edwards, Presbyter of Cimarron Presbytery, it’s nothing short of the work of the Holy Spirit. It’s the guidance of the Spirit that leads people to Cimarron, leads congregations to mission, and even leads Edwards to the volunteer position of Executive Presbyter.
“I'm not sure Oklahoma is the most attractive place for a lot of people. In fact, we recently installed a teaching elder who listed on her PIF the states where she would be interested in calling, and she omitted Oklahoma” said Edwards. “Yet through the Spirit, suddenly she is now a member of Cimarron Presbytery. I have to credit the Spirit because she sent her PIF in two weeks before the Executive Assembly in St. Louis and this one Cimarron PNC had a representative there. They happened to cross paths and had a good conversation, and it just proceeded from there. And I'm excited to have her here. And I think she brings good gifts to the congregation where she's serving and as well as to the presbytery.”
