This past Sunday the little congregation I have been tending to on a Sunday to Sunday basis, unanimously voted to "call" me. In my church language that means make it a permanent relationship, with salary, benefits and such, however, the commitment we will make to each other is far more important to me.
There is a celebratory and affirmation service called Ordination scheduled for April 17. It caps off my long seminary education and I will have fully 'arrived' as a minister.
The bonus is that it is a part time position, leaving me with plenty of time to make sawdust, flat stuff or spinny curls.
I am stoked. You all are my family. Please rejoice with me, for I believe that God is faithful and good.
