And it is I.
This means I get to:
- Use the lessons I have learned here to continue to thrive in ministry and more importantly equip others to thrive as well,
- Own a home,
- Move out of the fishbowl life that is living on the property of the church in the manse,
- Be fully involved in the life of the church but because of its proximity to where I have lived the last 7+ years keep my friends and support system in place and yet...
- It is far enough away that I no longer will run into TOW1.
There are still some hoops to jump through and the congregation has final say (most likely not until early January) but the committee has chosen me and deep, down in my soul it feels very, very good.
Thanks be to God!
