Today I begin my first day as the Interim Minister at Bethany Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Houston, Texas. It is a mixture of excitement and nervousness all mixed together. I have begun the process of unpacking all of my books and trying to get them in some sort of arrangement on the bookshelves. I am looking forward to the opportunity that awaits me as I continue to journey with God in ministry. This summer has not been the easiest but I am confident that good things are still yet to come.
Above is a picture of my office with the bare shelves.
In the mean time I am staying with a member of the church while the search committee is trying to find temporary housing for me (and possibly the rest of the family). Please pray that the house in Orange will be sold or rented soon. It has only been one day and I am not sure how many more days we can live as a divided family.
Here’s to the next step of the journey!
