I have been a pastor for a week. It feels good. I came into the church with 65-70 kids running around during Vacation Bible School. It was kind of crazy — but a good kind of crazy. I prepared for my first service as well as my first time presiding over communion. It was a good feeling — it really helped me solidify my call as a pastor. It helped me gain more confidence in this vocation that I have been called too.
There is so much going on right now it is hard to sit down and spill everything out. It feels like my life is a fast moving train and there is no way to stop it. However, with that being said things are coming together.
We moved in our new place and really like it. We have a garage full of boxed somewhat organized into different piles but there is still unpacking that needs to be done.
I am getting more and more familiar with the church and how the church runs. I am finding out their style of ministry while I am finding out my own. I think we will work well together.
I am trying to catch up on things like emails, blog posts, well wishes and I would like to establish a routein. I guess things will eventually come……..
I have to get my office in order. I have a number of boxes of books that need to come in and get organized and my office furnature needs to be arranged to how I want it- I just need to figure out how I want it 🙂
Ministry is fun – ministry can be overwhelming. I hope that the fun comes sooner than later 🙂
PS – since I have lots of new stuff going on I decided to change the look and title of my blog. I hope to stick with this one for awhile. There are other adjustments that need to be made but I decided to call it “Life Together” – I chose this since I am starting a new life- That involves you, my new church home and community. I also enjoy the book by the same title by Bonhoeffer. You should check it out! (another blog topic for the future)
