Ministry Year-End Update

As 2021 comes to an end, we reflect back on how the Lord has blessed... we are counting our blessings! We're thankful for God's grace, love, and mercy. His Truth, given through the Word of God and Spirit of God, continues to give us hope and guide us in our endeavors!

Observing my 72nd birthday several months ago caused me to pause for some reflection: I have seen the earth make 72 laps around the sun. Seventy-two years ago, I did not know which end of a camera to look through, how to hold a guitar, how to ride a bike, or even how to feed myself. When I was born, I could not even walk or talk. All of those skills I have acquired with much effort over the years.

By Robert J. Tamasy

When I arrived at CBMC in 1981 to begin my work as editor, then director of publications, I had a sharp learning curve. Being unfamiliar with the ministry before accepting the job, one of my first assignments was to read the book, “Men Aflame,” an historic account of CBMC from its founding in 1930 until the late 1960s. Little did I know that I would one day write a sequel of sorts, “Marketplace Ambassadors: CBMC’s Continuing Legacy of Evangelism and Disciplemaking,” that captured stories from the ministry’s first 90 years.

Part 2: Reflections from a Beneficiary of CBMC’s Rich Spiritual Legacy

By Robert J. Tamasy

In my last post, I noted that I’ve been involved with CBMC in both full-time staff and non-staff roles for nearly 40 years. Over that span, God has taught me some incredible spiritual lessons, proving that when I was introduced to CBMC in 1981, I didn’t know what I didn’t know.
