"Where will you be when you get where you're going?" - Jerry Clower
I've been on a journey for a long time. A spiritual journey. At times I know every step and direction that I'm going to take. At other times I only know the final destination and how I get there is the surprise.
The mission trip this week will end up being a large part of my journey. I'm having a hard time putting into words the peace that I am feeling today due to God's affirmation of my calling, the connection I'm feeling to my fellow pastors, and the sense of Christian community that I haven't felt for a long time.
For the past few years, I've been anxious to reach the final stage of ordination in the United Methodist Church but I realized this week that I've needed all these years as part of my journey to grow, learn, and live.
I truly feel that I was created "for such a time as this".
I'm on a spiritual high right now. I know I'll hit reality again next week but there will be more mission trips in my future and I'm inviting those reading to join me. Let me know if you're up to it.
Until Everyone Hears,
