I will be brief. This Sunday, Pentecost, Church in the Cliff will gather to ordain me as a Baptist minister. It is thrilling. I have worked toward this for the past four years and it is a delight and an honor to be affirmed by a group of people that I love so much. It is also terrifying. You must be crazy to ordain me. There must be some mistake. I must have made a horrible error in judgment to have chosen to walk this path. But that is the beauty of it: to be who I truly am and still be chosen by this community, to risk loving and being loved. It is a gift that I can never live up to. So thank you to all those who have supported me and challenged me along the way. I look forward to the visions and dreams that lie ahead.
Please join us this Sunday, 11am at Kidd Springs Rec Center as we celebrate the beginning of the Church and the beginning of a life of service to those I am blessed to call friends.
Grace & Peace,
