Being back at college has slowed my blogging up a little! Some of it is time, some of it that more questions are raised in my mind through being here and I need to process them further.
One that continues to swirl around in my mind is my calling as a evangelist.
I will be Ordained in June (ish) 2010 (On that note Sam, what's your view of Baptist Ordination? As a Anglo-Catholic I'm sure you wouldn't see it as valid, but what about since your involvement with us evangelicals?) as a accredited Evangelist. In January I will begin the process of seeking God, with the help of the college, to what God is calling me into next.
My time at college has sharpened that calling to be a evangelist. I have never felt it so strongly. The irony of that is that I have led fewer people to Jesus this year than ever before (I know that it is God who brings people to himself, but I believe God uses mere mortals like us to show them the Way).
The problem is that I'm not sure if churches are looking for evangelists. I'm not sure they even know what to do with evangelists. So I'm entering a period of time where I may have to break new ground.
I'm looking forward to the next 18 months discovering God's next step for me and my family. I can't wait! I feel like a bird who's in a cage waiting to be released into the wide open space. So my wings are flapping widely at the moment, and I know soon enough the door will open!
