A lovely church
asked if I'd send a resume
and consider becoming their pastor.
"Yeah, like THAT is gonna happen."
and i did nothing about it.
Several months later, that "inner voice thing" went off inside me
and would not let me get any work done until I'd sent a resume.
Finally, I did exactly that . . sent the resume
Then, i went back to work and didn't give it a second thought.
the church "Search Committee"
got super excited
They called everyone they could
asking for recommendations
Within a week
I was being interviewed by the search committee,
giving a workshop for the congregation,
giving the Sunday Service
going to dinner with the Board,
Being interviewed and celebrated by the congregation
It was scary.
Finally i noticed
all these beautiful people came to be a part of something
Be Loving and Supportive
Last year I'd been taken advantage of
it was NOT a fun time
NOW I could see, this as a Healing Going On
Color Me Grateful
Now, when the few dark things present themselves for "review."
I have new information to weigh it with (or against)
I suspect that resume process
was The Holy One
making sure I'm still
Like the old television show that said:
"Your mission, should you choose to accept it . . . "
That willingness to submit a piece of paper
has begun a new process
I had to DO SOMETHING
(okay, you're going to ask about the church, aren't you???
Other people are asking for the position. I do not, for one instant, think I'm the perfect, next minister. I've left it all open for the Holy to sort out . . BUT, OTHER GREAT THINGS have begun to occur and, I'm finally excited about the possibilities.)
This is the first report.
NOW, as this NEW YEAR is approaching . . .
Please tell me, what's happening in YOUR WORLD . . . ?
love & love,
