Well, I told my congregation today that I would be leaving. I am excited about all that is going on, but I am also sad to be leaving. I really do care about these people and feel, in a way, that I am abandoning them. I know that I have to believe that God is in this whole thing and that God will be there for the congregation too.
We actually had a good talk the congregation was able to see how they have grown and how they are more able to be "Church" now. I am happy that they were able to see that hey have grown and that they are able to see this not as a defeat, but as a challenge.
I had to have someone else read the part that said that I was leaving because I started crying like a schoolgirl. This is such a combination of joys and sorrows. AND AM I TIRED!
Well, I will be meeting with the new congregation this week and hopefully that will answer a few things.
Nick and I were looking for apartments. We wanted to find a house because all the stained glass stuff takes a lot of room. We found an apartment with a "bonus room" that could be usable. I hate looking for apartments.
Now I am just chilling and getting my thoughts together. I have to send stuff to the bishop's office but that can wait until tomorrow.
