One Year Later, and a Long Time More

I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support on the Anniversary of my priesting on February 8.  It was a Sunday, so I got applause at my church a couple of times.  I got to baptize a student from school, preach and celebrate.  It was a pretty awesome day.

I put up a picture of a year ago on Facebook, and got over 130 likes on the picture, and several comments.  What was most meaningful about that was the many, many friends from all through my life that were affirming my call.  Jewish, Buddhist, Mormon, Baptist, and Nones threw in their love, and even a few Episcopalians from my church and around the Diocese.  I even got a like from the Bishop of the Rift Valley in Africa.

Today, I bumped into an old friend I knew from my seminary days.  He asked what was new, and I shared my anniversary with him.  "Yeah, I have been a priest a year," I said.  "Oh, you've been one a lot longer than that," he said.  And I have.  He was right.  This long journey has taken many a circuitous route along the way.  I am blessed and I could not be more excited about what the future holds.  Thanks be to God!
