Dear Dove Mountain Friends,
We've been quite grateful for the warm, hospitable welcome that we have received from all of you. Thank you very much for the way that you have embraced us, and continue to do so. We are so happy to be here among you.
Several of you have asked me how you might be in contact with me, and it occurred to me that it may be helpful for me to outline the different ways that you might get in touch with me. I'm also eager to be in regular contact with you! So I'll also mention some ways that you might "receive" communications from me.
We don't have local phone numbers for our mobile phones (yet), but you are certainly welcome to call me on mine nevertheless. I'm not a heavy text-messager, but I do receive— and respond to— text messages on my mobile phone, as well. That number is: (901) 451-0356. Of course, you can always reach me (at least by leaving a message) through the church's office line: (520) 744-8778.
I also do a good bit of e-mail, and if you e-mail then feel free to e-mail me at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the last several years, I've written a "pastor's blog" about a variety of topics. Sometimes I blog a lot, and other times I'll go for stretches without writing much. Still, if you read blogs, you may want to read mine; I would be happy to receive your comments through it, as well. My blog's address is: edspastorblog.blogspot.com.
I'm also active on several of the social network websites. You can find me on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ed.eubanks) and on Twitter (www.twitter.com/EdEubanks); I'd love to be your Facebook friend and follow you on Twitter, if you're on these sites too. If you read books, my may want to find me on GoodReads (www.goodreads.com/edeubanks) so that we can trade book recommendations and reviews.
There are others, too— if you want to find all of my "social" pages, check out this web page: about.me/EdEubanks.
Again, I'm glad to be here as your pastor, and look forward to connecting with you, both in person and online!
