I’ve been here in Indianapolis since the afternoon of July 3rd. It’s hard to image, with all that happened yesterday, today is the first official day of General Convention. The day kicks off with a legislative session from 8-9am with mostly organization stuff going on.
Yesterday was a crazy day. Seeing old friends and making new ones. Attending meetings, orientations, hearings, and a screening of Out of the Box and Love Free or Die. Yesterday I was most grateful for fellow RI deputies who went out to dinner and brought me some for after the Double Feature screening.
It’s an awe inspiring thing to be part of this Convention, and part of the Out of the Box project. What a privilege to share my story with so many and to work with such amazing folks.
I’m so thankful for this important work and all my colleagues. But I find myself struggling with a balance of the expectations of others and what I feel called to be doing. My God be with us all as we discern how call is calling us to serve the Church.
Almighty and everlasting God, by whose Spirit the whole body of your faithful people is governed and sanctified: Receive our supplications and prayers which we offer before your for all members of you holy Church, that in their vocation and ministry they may truly and devoutly serve you; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Pray for us as the fun begins!
