Q: What do these three images have in common?
A: As of next year, they will all be associated with the Netherlands!

Last week I was appointed by my denomination as the new President of the church in Europe. In February, Christie and I will be moving to Rotterdam in the Netherlands to assume the duties and begin our new life in Europe. ... And my calendar is already packed.

What will happen when a West Seattle Peace & Justice minister goes to Europe? How will an activist fare in a larger administrative role? How will I look in a Citroёn? Burning questions that will be explored right here.

  • Congratulations on your new position, Christian. You're a tremendous asset to the church and Europeans will realize that soon enough.

  • I am excited for both of you and look forward to hearing about you travels and experiences. The Church in Europe is getting a great lift.

  • Congratulations! But we in the Pacific Northwest, of course, will feel the loss and sadness of your leaving. But I am happy for you both and also excited. I love the years I lived in Europe, so you will have many wonderful opportunities there and I'm sure that if and when you return stateside, that they won't want to let you go either!

    God bless!

  • May your journeys and adventures go well as you embrace this new role... It looks to be an exciting time for you, and the saints in Europe as you share and minister together.
    Peace be with you,

  • Yes, Erasmus of R'dam, windmill and a nice young couple, it seems a very good "triplet" for the future.
    Congratulations here again, dear Christian from Hungary (from the real heart of EUROPE, as you must be aware of it :-)) and please be also conscious, we are waiting for you with love and friendship.
    We are speaking a lot of language, but have a common CofChrist sense and heart.
