6 Months On
I suspect that mostly this has been a tiredness of hearing myself preach, a little touch of imposter-syndrome and the above-named really-landed-ness. (Also lack of convenient cafes with street facing barstool seats like the one I am holding right now.) I have been a priest for 6 months and a solo pastor for 5 - between which I moved truly coast to coast. Perhaps what I say each week sounded more interesting to me when I was hearing others more often, when I was only preaching every other week.
Then this past weekend by blessing and by happenstance I was gifted with multiple reminders that while what I say may seem uninteresting to me, there are folks who experience it with delight and insight. So going forward I will try harder to post more often, more texts. Less really-landed-ness and more defying gravity.We are going to have to write this book of jubilation for ourselves.
