Living in and doing ministry in a small town does have it’s share of disadvantages, but it definitely has its advantages.
I was on vacation last week (out of the office but not out of town) and this week I am in St. Paul, MN. Last night I found out something that I don’t think I was meant to find out…yet. It was nothing bad about me (and I wish I could go into details with you, but I can’t right now). All I can say is that it is something I wish I was told earlier, but something I will get over very quickly.
It just goes to show that it is hard to keep secrets in a small town (even if the person you’re "hiding" from is out of town).
