The energy and excitement at the church is building. Attendance continues to grow, the stewardship campaign has done well, and ideas continue to bubble up all over the place. The treasurer and finance chair were here this morning, and we discussed several issues. We agreed to explore a new approach for addressing our capital needs, which has been an issue that we have been talking about since I arrived two years ago.
It is gratifying to see things going so well, and a little bit scary. I know that it is God at work in and through us. I don't know where it will lead, and I know there will be some bumps along the road. There are so many good ideas, and of course, individuals want to talk to me about those ideas. At times it gets a bit overwhelming. I'm grateful I no longer have to deal with the stress of Daughter living with me, but I'm finding it hard to do the things I should be doing for her through the day, especially some of the phone calls and such. Even though she no longer lives with me, I still find being her parent involves a lot of juggling. Some days I'm better at juggling than other days. Today hasn't been one of the good ones.
