Happy Sunday everyone! I have a lot of stuff Im thinking about today. Mostly reminiscing about life at seminary and the friends I made there. Just got done reading a post about my good friend Mark’s ordination yesterday. I even got to see some pictures which brought tears to my eyes. I so wish I could have been there but am glad that it was so well attended. I believe that is a true testament of who you are as a person! Congratulations Pastor Mark! THe post also got me thinking about how frustrating and difficult the call process can be. I remember how frustrated I was waiting to find a call etc and it is hard to see friends in that same position. I know I can tell them things etc but that isnt always reassuring. I have to agree with Mark though when he said that the amount of time it takes to receive a call is not characteristic of the quality of that persons gifts etc…something along those lines. That is so true! SKDO, you are such a dear friend and have so many awesome gifts for ministry. I know that in due time, you will get a wonderful call and will be such a blessing to the people of the congregation you serve. Sometimes I just wish I could speed up the process for you! You all have been such a blessing to me and I want you to know that I hold these friendships closely and dearly to my heart. Guess thats it for now. Congrats again Mark and please forgive me for not being able to make it there.
