That’s right, the lucky people of region seven will soon be embarking on a journey with me in my ministerial vocation.
Last night the seniors at The Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia worshiped with the community and then went to the Presidents house for conversation, anticipation and opening of our regional assignments. It was a very tense time but I think that everyone at LTSP was able to receive their first or second choice in region.
Region Seven is the North East United States. Now we have to wait until Palm Sunday when we will gather at the seminary in Philadelphia and we will interview with the bishops in the region and then be assigned to a synod after that.
I must say as I get closer to graduation, as I get further along in assignment the more nervous I get. This means the more I need to rely on the Holy Spirit throughout this process. I know what I want and I know it is not up to me but it is up to where God sees it best for me. I know that in my head and I need to also feel it in my heart.
