since I was last involved in active pastoral ministry. I’ve filled in at any number of places, of course, but to be back in the saddle with things to organize, well, its been a while.
But its time. This is what I was trained to do. This is what I want to do. Yes, at the present its working with the youth, (something not in “my” plans as if that really matters) but its important and its good to back at “work”. Who knows when the “draft” comes or when I get to plant the church I’ve always dreamed of building? Faithful in what presents itself and God will take care of the rest.
God, make your dreams for me my dreams as well, and help me not to let the good people I’ve been called to serve down in the year ahead. Simple as that.
