I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything of any merit. Not saying that this will be of merit either, but it’s worth a shot.
Last Tuesday I drove down here to start my job. Wednesday and Thursday were whilrwinds of activity. Everyone showing me the ropes and whatnot. I was able to go back home for a brief weekend and then back down here. My step-mom’s mom actually rode w/ me. So I didn’t get to turn on the radio or talk any on the phone because she told me stories for 3 hours. Man that was a long trip. She has some family near here or something like that.
But Sunday was my first Sunday here. I spoke briefly at both services that morning. I actually expected to be nervous, but wasn’t at all. None. I was probably more nervous when I was back at my old church and speaking to the crowd than I was here. I felt wiped out in the afternoon, but rejuvinated w/ a mini-nap. Then the first youth group meeting of my new ministry. There were about 3 times as many folks there last night as I usually had at my old church. But again, no nervousness.
So I made it almost a week here now. Today was my first staff meeting. First prayer breakfast tomorrow. Still getting my feet wet. And it will be a while until I’m settled in.
Please pray for my house to sell.
