So … this might be a surprise to my remaining loyal RSS readers. A new post! At least a few of my readers have asked what’s up; why no posts? Why no updates on our journey?
I can’t say that I’ve been too busy. I have plenty of time to do lots of things while searching for a new ministry position. Nor have I been injured and unable to write. I’m in good health; and in fairly sound mind – as much as I’ve ever been. So … why no blogging?
The simple answer is that I chose not to write. I just didn’t want to do it. No big reason.
And now, I’m back. I choose to write, hoping to add more random musings to your RSS feed readers.
Waiting, while sending dozens of resumes, and finding that very few search committees even acknowledge that they have received it.
Waiting, and choosing to be thankful when we are not chosen by a church to join their team.
Waiting to sell our home in a terrible housing market, knowing that God has perfect timing. And a better plan than we have.
Waiting, and learning to understand the loneliness that so many feel when they become unemployed and are not seeing co-workers every day. I think I’ll be a better pastor for that.
Waiting, and being surprised by God with friends who continue to surprise with their kindness, care and love.
Waiting, and reading, praying, journaling, learning, and drinking a lot of coffee.
Waiting, and trusting God even when the days become boring, or discouraging, or downright depressing.
You get the idea.
