I’ve seen a few of you, my blog-reading friends, either in person or around the wonderful web, and you’ve asked for an update. There’s so much happening in life now, above and beyond the work transition, but the work transition is the focus of most of my days.
With just a few weeks remaining in my employment at Christ’s Church Albany, I think we’re in pretty reasonable position with transitioning much of my staff role into a lot of newly created volunteer roles. There has been quite a bit of angst for me as I attempt (some times better than others) to disentangle myself from that, but I think we’re all making good progress. Our church has great people!
Of course, there are some parts that haven’t captivated anyone just yet. I believe they will! I’m coming to grips with the fact that I may not be directly handing them off… yuk. The bonus, though, is that whenever that happens, I’m still a part of the church and definitely available for questions and encouragement. Of course, the possibility exists that won’t even be needed.
I’m continuing to explore the potential position I wrote about here. I’m excited by the possibilities that work would offer. I have intentionally done very little as it relates to that position beside pray and show the relevant details to a few trusted friends for their prayer and counsel. Most people are pretty positive about most aspects and each raised similar questions, all of which is encouraging.
Because of the “stuff of life” coming over the next 4-6 weeks, including some important family needs, I probably won’t update about my work situation until after Easter. I may write about other things… maybe… I do want to be more consistent and there’s no time like the present to start fresh, right?
I appreciate you!
