“Moses parts the Red Sea, Jonah lives in the belly of the whale, Daniel survives a night with the Lions…
And Todd Bussey gets married?”
That’s how my youth minister from middle school and high school opened the letter announcing his recent engagement! And there was much rejoicing!
Having been at Crossroads/Cullen Avenue for 20-odd years, Todd has, unfortunately, become a rare breed in the current climate of churches and their ministers. I look up to him as an example of what a minister is and what a minister should be. Don’t get me wrong – I know he’s not perfect…none of us are. I just know that if I could look back on my life and say I had a ministry that impacted people like Todd’s has, then I’ll feel pretty confident that I made a difference.
So, this perpetually single guy, who has made a difference in countless lives (including my own), is finally getting hitched! I want to do everything in my power to make it to the ceremony in December. After all, he came to my wedding (of course, he had to – he co-officiated the ceremony), and I would give anything to be able to share the joy of that day.
We’ll see how it all pans out. I only have a few weeks to arrange the details.
Congratulations, Todd! The Lord does provide – in His timing!
