Holy cow! I’m in! Union accepted me!
What’s funny is that just last night at Wellspring, I was expressing my deep fear that this had all passed me by… that I would not get in, and then what?
The “then what” question has been weighing on me for a while. What if I didn’t get in? What path would I pursue? How would I manage to find my ministry? Would I apply elsewhere? Would I say “this is a sign”? Would I slink back to my congregation with failure on my face?
I was actually thinking about writing on this today…and then I got the mail.
Of course, first was the panic, as it was a VERY SLIM ENVELOPE. That’s never a good sign… that’s usually a “thanks, but no” letter.
So imagine my surprise and joy when I read “congratulations!”
I’m still floating…and grinning… going to meet with my minister shortly before choir; she’ll be so pleased.
