Yesterday went very well, both services. In between the services, the Senior Pastor and I met and discussed different issues facing the church. It was time well-spent. It will take time to adjust to being in a large church but I'm looking forward to it.
One of the questions that I asked was, "Is anyone resentful of me getting this position?" She said, "Not in the least." Which is comforting because there is always a risk and I knew that the youth minister was working towards ordination. I have a tendency to take people at their word and not always pay enough attention to the unspoken currents in an organization. I have been working on this fault, but I'm pretty outspoken and up-front so I find it hard to understand those who say one thing and mean another.
Well, time to go into the office.
