Sold and Clarification

Yea, the house now has new owners - they got the keys yesterday. What a relief.

I'd like to clarify my "Been on my mind" post: This post was something I needed to express and put "out there" but I already knew the answer. You cannot not be you and still make a good priest.

Even though I can't discern in my community, they validate me all the time in big and little ways. Too many people I respect validate that they can see me "in minstry," or "as a priest." And those are truly wonderful gems. But the ones that truly sparkle are the shared words that come from moments of being together.

So, what I'm saying is that "you" saw a glimpse of my insecurities and fears - that I am not good enough.

And well...phooowwwiieee on that.

Congratulations on both counts--your clarity regarding your unique path, and on the done house deal. Moving is in and of itself a kind of dismembering experience and can call forth those dastardly insecurities. Looks like a more far-reaching move is in store. Best of luck in the journey...

And thank you for the wonderful comment on my blog.

Congrats to all of you on the transition. Maybe it's time for one of those countdown clocks to Burlington.
