Wow, what a week. About the only bad thing about going on holiday is all the stuff you come back to. It’s been a frantic week. I’ve had some stuff go wrong, and I’ve spent most of the week in a bit of a funk. But that’s over (mostly) now. I found that I didn’t have much motivation this week as I faced a couple of huge problems. I think I know why. When you’re sure about what you’re doing, you can handle problems. When you have questions about what you’re doing, every problem seems insurmountable. As I begin my D.Min. and generally probe issues around the established church, I find myself a little less motivated to tackle some of the junk that comes along with the job. The discussion the other day helped a lot. I really needed to settle the question of whether serving in an established church even makes sense. I think it does, as long as that church is on the road to being missional. Clarifying that question helps a ton. Good to be out of the funk.
