2008 ... what a year. My 401K became a 200.5K, my Mini Cooper had a clutch and water pump replaced, and I found out that I have arthritis in both my hands.
At least my cholesterol levels are down !!
What am I praying for in 2009?
Hopefully a full Alpha course this quarter (See previous entry: here).
A congregation that will understand that while budgeting 10% of offerings for missions and benevolences is a great goal, having the church fall around your ears while doing that is NOT good stewardship.
That the same congregation will learn that being a Christian does not mean showing up for Sunday worship, then forgetting about church for another week; ignoring all attempts to educate them in their faith.
And finally, that my friend will find a location that will accept her as the pastor I know she can be.
