This last week and weekend were not good one’s for me. I was very sick physically and that basically put me out of the game for several days. I didn’t write like I wanted to and for the most part I was just being miserable. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day I could do nothing so I did exactly that. That was not good in a lot of respects. The rundown for Spirit though is odd because through it all I think I actually made progress.
Ministry – Oddly enough I did manage to feel well enough to preach this last Sunday and that sermon (which is coming up next post) this is about leadership. It is about setting an atmosphere and keeping the church on track about its mission and vision. For me it was also simply telling the people of my church that his year its success or failure is going to be about their ideas. It is a Sabbath year for me for ideas, I am going to see what crop is produced on its own.
Leadership – Still no word from the college I applied to go to. Part of the problem is my alma mater Trinity Bible College has no one in the office to talk to right now as they are on Christmas break. I can’t find out if they sent my transcript to Ferris until January 5th. My hope is they sent it and Ferris simply hasn’t gotten around to deciding but they are not responding either.
Spiritual Disciplines – Other than praying to God a lot for help getting through my sickness, nor the peaceful meditation of sleep when I could get it.
Celebration – Eventually I did get Christmas with my family. It was a good time.
I hope next week as we get started this will be better. I hope soon some news about things will allow me to take steps forward.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
