New Year, New Start, New Priorities

It has been a hot second since I have posted here.  Well over a year in fact.  Almost two.

Life has continued on.

And my life is entering a new season, hopefully.  For most of the last two years or so I have been working at Colonial Williamsburg in Williamsburg, VA as a historical interpreter.  While I have been enjoying the work, it is just about time for me to move on, or more accurately, move back into what it is that God has called me to.

In the next few days, I will be submitting my application to the MDiv program at Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond.  I hope to finish my MDiv that I started at WFUSD and move into the congregational ministerial role that I know that God has called me toward.

Before we even started dating, my dear A looked at me one day while we were walking and talking at work and said, “don’t you think its time to stop running.”  Well she was as right then as possible.  It is time for me to stop running, stop pretending that God hasn’t called me to vocational congregational ministry.  The models are changing.  I don’t know what it is going to look like, but I know that it is going to be amazing.

As I prayerfully move into this new stage of my life, I ask that you pray with me.  I don’t really know what the next year or two is going to look like (although I have some hopes!) but I know that I intend to chase and seek the heart of God in a very real way.

Expect another post in the next day or so in which I will lay out my priorities for the next year or so for myself and how I plan on engaging the world, both IRL and here on the web.

Love and Peace to you all!
