Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Thursday, March 16, 2006


As it turns out, and after all this time, it didn't take St. Hither very long to make their final deliberations. On Monday we received a call-- make that A Call - inviting us to take up ministry with the good people there.

We said yes.

So come this summer, I will be priest-in-charge for the congregations of Yellowstone Episcopal Ministries-- a regional ministry of churches just outside Billings, Montana. Four small mission churches, each with different gifts and challenges, working together for the Gospel. Yes, there is an assisting priest, thank God-- and one who seems both focused and flexible. We're going to get along well, I think.

We're moving to Montana!!

I'm so excited for you, and so glad you're going to a place with friends nearby (well, nearby in Western terms, that is).

Wow, that's wonderful! Thanks be to God!

But that sure is along way from 'the region', isn't it?

Thank you, one and all, for your prayers and good wishes.

RevMom/Cheesehead: Yes, it is a long way from "The Region" -- about 1300 miles or so. Quite a shift for a couple of lifelong midwesterners!
