Finding our way to The Way one situation at a time. I don't know how great it will be, but I expect it will be interesting, and I look forward to it going on past all reason because wonder is just that way. Are you coming or not?
Our work is that of
changing our mind about what's important
until we get it right
in each situation as it arises,
and do that,
no matter what,
when, where and how it needs to be done,
letting that be that
as we move on into the next situation.
Not keeping score,
not remembering outcomes,
not planning strategies,
not thinking about winning...
Just being right about what's important,
and living in ways which serve that,
situation by situation,
all our life long.
It may not sound like much,
but everything hangs on it.
Knowing what's important
and serving it,
anyway, nevertheless, even so,
is the most important thing there is ever.
I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing.
I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
