The meeting went very well! The congregation has been through some tough times, but now seems ready to heal. I think it will be a good thing.
I am beginning to think that my ministry in life is going to be going into congregations and loving them back to health. I seem to have been in congregations that have had some "difficulties." I hope I am able to have learned something at each of the places and will be able to bring that learning to the new places that I serve.
