Back at it...again.

I've completely neglected this blog for well over a year.  There has been a lot going on in my life & lots of transitions.  One of my goals for 2014 is to get back to writing & blogging.  Here it goes...

Since I last posted:
1) I left Pennsylvania in November 2012 & moved back home to Tennessee while I began the search for a new church call.  It was a hard decision, as I loved living in PA, but due to financial constraints, it was a necessary choice.
2) I spent most of the spring of 2013 as a substitute teacher in an elementary school.  It was good income & I loved spending time with the students.
3) I did some supply preaching in a few churches, getting my feet wet again in the world of preaching.  Good stuff.
4) Went to UNCO13 in Stony Point, NY.  Love those people.
5) After months of searching, I was called to be the new pastor of a church in Minnesota.  I moved here in September 2013, so coming up on my four month anniversary.  It is the best church I could ask for - amazing people, willingness to move forward, new possibilities.  Happy.
6) I bought a house.  It is amazing to finally be a homeowner.
7) I got a cat.  His name is Watson.  I love the little guy.

So, that brings us to today.  January 3rd.  2014 is starting out on a good note.  Glad for a quiet start after a hectic, uncertain, filled with transition 2013.

I promise to write more.
