Truth be told, I am beyond thrilled to be able to sit here. I continue to recover (slowly) from various health issues, and I’m happy to report that progress is being made. Our child has returned to daycare, successfully making it through a positive Covid diagnosis with very few symptoms. We are grateful. My spouse and I still need to be quarantined for a bit longer; his work follows the CDC guidelines of beginning his quarantine after our child’s ends. And thus, we find ourselves in the same place we’ve been for a number of weeks now, and that’s ok.
I am happily returning to pastoral care duties this week and am thankful to Don Kaufman and Ben Keckler who stepped in when I wasn’t able to respond to pastoral needs and life-cycle emergencies recently. I am SO humbled to serve with the safety net of such great retired pastors.
My health is not yet 100% and am continuing to work with doctors to solve the mystery of my numb leg. One (literal) step at a time. I will continue to focus on Worship, Livestream Team, and our Capacity Building Team as we are moving into a new season of life in our congregation. So much fun to be had and so much loving to do in this world!
