Sometimes, we take a road straight to our destination. Many days we are drawn to the scenic route. My dad always said, “All roads lead somewhere.”
Faith journeys are very often zig-zag or hidden paths to a unique destination. I feel that I was on a circular faith journey that brought me to you as your DCE.
My journey is now taking a twist, as I am sensing a call to enter ordained ministry. I had heard a call to this path but, like many before me, I questioned my ability. I forgot that it was really, in the end, not about me but about The Spirit. When I finally (yes, finally!) talked out loud about going to seminary, I felt a deep Peace.
I will become a student in the Master of Divinity program at Eden Theological Seminary in the Fall.
I will still be here at First Congregational Church, working among you. So, although I know the path of this new journey will not be easy, I also know I won’t be alone.
Can I count on you to help me follow the map of this new path?
