Invited to Both Dances

Both churches have asked me to serve as their interim pastor, which is great, but I hate having to turn anyone down. I'd rather eat worms.

There really is no question, in my mind, as to which church I feel called to serve. However, my husband leans toward the other because it's a little easier to get to and, he believes, the road is safer. They are offering practically identical pay packages, so no real difference there.

Considering the situation I have found myself in with being laid-off, this truly is an extravagant blessing to be asked to serve by both churches.

Now, I just hope that I will be an effective interim.

When I was all stressed out about having two calls when I was graduating from seminary, my roommate at the time said "This is good, S, you can't discern between one!"

So take your time, pray on it, weigh it... and go where you CHOOSE to go! Alleluia! Alleluia!
