- The interview/application process was wonderful. I felt at ease, I was able to be myself, and I met people I really enjoyed.
- I've had a small relationship with the seminary for years, and I love that I'll be able to do something new with people I already trust and respect.
- I've been murmuring about chaplaincy for years-- ever since I began the Episcopal ordination process. It got shoved in the corner for a while, and started popping back up when I resigned. This God-nudge is not a new thing.
- It's a brand-new program, and it's so fun for me to be there from the very beginning.
And that's where my prayers are this week. They're half praise, and half petition. Praise for the exciting opportunity, for three years to study what I love and practice it. Petition for my fear and hesitation. I've long said that dating after divorce seems to be one of the most courageous things people can do. In the ongoing relationship analogy of vocation and discernment, I'm about to go steady.
Pray for me, y'all.
