This past week I was blessed with the opportunity to spend time in Marion, Indiana for the first course in my Master of Divinity program, a course called Pastor, Church & World, at Wesley Seminary (Indiana Wesleyan University). There is so much I learned about myself as a person, in addition to what it means to be a pastor within the context of how I am serving the church currently. It will probably take me a while to fully digest it all, but I know it was where I was supposed to be.
I cannot say enough good things about the instructors and fellow students I met during my time there. Everyone was extremely nice and went out of there way to make our time spent together as enjoyable and enriching as possible. I went into this journey feeling like I was in way over my head; I still feel that way, but I know now that there is nothing wrong with that, and it just means that my source of reliance must come from the Lord!
I will post more reflections on my week in Marion in the days ahead, but in closing I just want to share a thought I have heard stated different ways, but that still holds true in any version:
God doesn’t call the equipped, He equips the called.
Be strong and follow hard after Him!
