Done

With some urging from More Cows, I decided to call the PNC chair. I'm so glad that I did because now I don't have to wonder anymore and I can finally feel free to explore other calls.

This is what he told me:
The PNC fell in love with both me and the other candidate and just couldn't make up their minds between us. Then, a pastor in their Presbytery decided to throw his hat into the ring and, well, it is likely that they are going to extend the call to him.

My intuition tells me that there is more to the story, but that's not my concern, is it?

This night before Pentecost, I pray God's blessing on that call and that their ministry together will flourish.

Did you tell the chair that it would be nice of them to let the other candidate know too, so he/she can move on with the process as well? I still think it's totally horrible that they have held you hostage for a month.

Here's praying that the spirit will move in this Pentecost season.

(((Iris))) The right place will call you at the right time... for the right reasons... but the waiting and wondering... sucks! But know this... there are folks out here praying for you... every day!

You remain in my prayers. As we both await a call, it's nice to know I'm not alone. In order for you to use your gifts in the most effective way, it's gotta be right and this obviously wasn't. Even in the disappointment, know that God is preparing a place for you. Keep on keepin' on.
