oh man, you and I would get on great and talk well into the night I think. I LIVE that feeling. David and I feel that way about Revolution ( all the time.

Welcome to how I live every day - EVERY time I try and do something major, life comes crashing down on me. But somehow God picks up the pieces and puts them to good use.

yes this too is the tension i always live with. i think it's especially tricky when we are strong people with loud voices and the ability to pull a lot of things off. i am wrestling with this idea that it's not all God and no me (i came from the thought that any me was a bad thing) it's maybe both of us together a little more. i cannot do it without God, he of course can do it without me but somehow he chooses me to be part of the fun (aka the "oh shit, here we go!") i was reading the story of gideon again for last sunday eve at the refuge and my favorite two things God said to gideon were "go in the strength you have..." and "i will be with you." i was extra moved by the go in the strength you have thought. sometimes i have a lot of strength, sometimes i have little. sometimes i have none. God will always fill in the gap in some crazy way that is unexpected (and is probably not directly connected to my insane views of success or failure). know we will be cheering you on and see you in a few weeks at the theology pub.

my prayer for you, totally ripped from the BCP:
Accept, O Lord, our thanks and praise for all that you have
done for us. We thank you for the splendor of the whole
creation, for the beauty of this world, for the wonder of life,
and for the mystery of love.

We thank you for the blessing of family and friends, and for
the loving care which surrounds us on every side.

We thank you for setting us at tasks which demand our best
efforts, and for leading us to accomplishments which satisfy
and delight us.

We thank you also for those disappointments and failures
that lead us to acknowledge our dependence on you alone.

Above all, we thank you for your Son Jesus Christ; for the
truth of his Word and the example of his life; for his steadfast
obedience, by which he overcame temptation; for his dying,
through which he overcame death; and for his rising to life
again, in which we are raised to the life of your kingdom.

Grant us the gift of your Spirit, that we may know him and
make him known; and through him, at all times and in all
places, may give thanks to you in all things. Amen.

You and God are working on an amazing thing. May S/He be in your every heartbeat, terror, smile, laugh, and tear. Bless you dear one.

p.s. where two or three are gathered... sounds like you have at least that. and really what do numbers mean anyway but to the bean counters? Ugh. Shutting up now. You are amazing.

it may come as better support from those you know, but from one who is living a parallel unfolding and 'emerging' ministry story it is nice to know that my own feelings are shared with another. thank you for your vulnerability. i will be starting a new emerging ministry in flagstaff here in aug/sept. you'll be in my thoughts and prayers.


ps - holden has always been a special place for me too, my wife and i were engaged there.

Come on. God uses Google Maps not Mapquest :)

Your description sounds great. This Presbyterian would show up.
