I passed! I passed!
On Tuesday I passed my presbytery exam and am feeling rather joyous about it. I was so blessed and honored to see many of you there and to know that those who couldn't be there were thinking about me. All your prayers and well wishes are probably why the moment I stepped in the pulpit, I was as calm as can be.
Now that I'm officially official, I feel great. Even though I've been here for two months, there has been this small part of me that wasn't here. I didn't want to feel completely at home yet because there was a slim possibility that this wouldn't be my home after all. And now that possibility is no more and I know beyond any doubts that this is my place, this is my home. And that feels really good.
