Are you trying to discern a call to - or away from - pastoral ministry?
I support your desired change by:
I get to share my own best self - my natural curiosity and interest in people (along with my sense of humor and desire to make a positive difference in the world), and I get to be in partnership with others who are working to do the same.
I'm great at connecting with people who are passionate about life, the world, other people, art, music, etc. Together we build a relationship of trust that helps you take risks, explore new possibilities, and move forward with deeper awareness and clarity.
Don't Hesitate - A Poem by Mary Oliver
If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy,
don’t hesitate. Give in to it. There are plenty
of lives and whole towns destroyed or about
to be. We are not wise, and not very often
kind. And much can never be redeemed.
Still, life has some possibility left. Perhaps this
is its way of fighting back, that sometimes
something happens better than all the riches
or power in the world. It could be anything,
but very likely you notice it in the instant
when love begins. Anyway, that’s often the
case. Anyway, whatever it is, don’t be afraid
of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb.
