As the title suggests, it has certainly been too long since my last post. I’ve been having a great time with CPE over the last two months. It hasn’t been all positive, but I’m getting to a point where I’m able to learn from the good AND the bad experiences. Believe you me, there have been plenty of each! In any case, I’m finally in the home stretch (three weeks left!) and am looking forward to finishing the experience and move on to learning Hebrew and write the ever-looming Endorsement essay.
I can’t wait to return back home for a while and worship with the wonderful people of St. John Lutheran! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the end of CPE than to worship back home and sin praises to the God that has called me to this amazing life. I couldn’t have done it without God or God’s people of St. John! I’m still working out what the date will be that I’ll finally be able to return, but I’m hoping to have at least one Sunday of rejuvination back in De Pere before the semester starts. And I’ll certainly be at the church picnic again this year to celebrate.
After that I’ll return back to the seminary and rejoin my fellow classmates, struggle with learning yet another language, and continue my calling. Most days it still seems so unreal that I’m actually here. I’m told the feeling can last a while, so I’ll just enjoy it for the time being. This is going to be another amazing, inspiring year, I can feel it!
Blessings to All!
