Summer Life and New Horizons

This week began my summer intensive in Clinical Pastoral Education at the Church Home at Montgomery Place.  I will work through Thursday, August 19th as a student intern.  While the summer promises to be busy, I am excited for the opportunities to learn, grow, and enrich my pastoral awareness.

I recently returned from a trip to Kentucky where I visited with my brother, celebrating his upcoming wedding with a bachelor party, and where I spent time with Kory Wilcoxson.  I remembered Kentucky as a place of hospitality, friendliness, and beautiful scenery; but I had forgotten how lively Lexington is and just how green the whole state is in the spring and summer.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and look forward to returning in the spring when Rebecca and I finish her optometry rotations in Lexington.  Over time, I just might learn to be a UK fan… but that’s no guarantee…

Unfortunately, I have not quite finished two projects that I must turn in soon in order to secure graduation status at the end of the summer.  Those papers–a Christian education curriculum and an exegetical paper on Acts 2:42-47–will make the transition away from school and into other work a little “smoother” and yet also busier.  I hope to complete those very soon!

Rebecca and I will visit new churches for the next few weeks.  We look forward to tasting the cutlure and diversity of church life in the city, though I am struggling to see myself as not (currently) a pastor.  My church experiences will slowly reinforce that reality to me, I’m sure.
