Dude, as a pastor in a church that does what our church does and does it how we do it (more to come), we all intentionally work as a productive part of the work force in our town and that has it’s benefits. I have been working at the Executive Director of Youth for Christ, Rome Area and as Bible Teacher at Unity Christian School where I taught Old Testament, New Testament, Systematic Theology and Apologetics. The work at Unity has grown to a full-time position as a the Director of Spiritual Life at the school. June 30 was my last day at YFC, and July 1 was my first day at Unity in this expanded role. Well, July 2-6 was time off for UCS staff, so I get a little break, or did I?
We tubed a river three times today, marched through downtown Dahlonega, GA, panned for gold, explored creeks and lakes, and chased lizards all while rodeoing three boys. Dude, I need a vacation from the vacation.
It’s fun. We are having a blast, and I’m recuperating from a long haul with lot’s of responsibilities. Thanks for all those who have prayed for the Jolly’s this past year. Father has been faithful.
I’ll be continuing the blogs on the role of the pastor when we return July 6, so keep an eye out for that. If you have not read the previous 4 posts, get caught up and join the dialogue.
Thanks for all the hits and comments. Keep it going.
