I was glancing over my calendar for the week and noticed that on this day, 8 years ago, “The Heart of a Pastor” was birthed. Yes, I actually wrote that in my calendar and yes, I am a nerd.
But 8 years, though…8. The big 0-8. A second grader.
I can’t believe I have been writing that long. So many times I thought I was going to give up writing on this blog but then something clicks and off I go again. But then again, as a “second grader” I get distracted easily with other things.
Now I am approaching the 10 year anniversary of my ordination and my ministry here in Jackson.
10 years…10. The big 1-0. A fourth grader.
I can’t believe that one either. And what makes that number more amazing is that this is still my first call. But maybe I should be more impressed that my congregations haven’t run me out of town yet.
Or maybe my longevity in Jackson and in this little corner of cyberspace is because the force is strong with this pastor. I mean, it can’t be a coincidence that I started this blog on this day 8 years ago; on Star Wars Day. You know what I am talking about, right.
May the fourth be with you 🙂
I guess the fourth (I mean the force) is strong in this one.
Happy “The Heart of a Pastor” Day AND Star Wars Day.
