Blogging from the side of the highway ...

I'm writing this sitting outside on the sidewalk in front of my motel room in Schreiber Ontario ... a couple hours east of Thunder Bay ... I'm en route to my mom's house in Stratford and to my Psychological/Vocational Assessment in Aurora ...

Beyond next Thursday my life is big question mark ...

It's funny - having time to think and reflect I thought about ALL the people who have expressed their support and encouragement and appreciation of me as minister - a minister who is not a fuddy-duddy ... and yet, here I am facing the uncertainty before me because I have been found "unfit" and "ineffective."

It's a "HUH?" moment for me ... I wonder if it is true ... or if I have been in a situation where other factors, not least of which was the effective poisoning of the waters of the community and the pastoral relationship which in turn profoundly altered peoples' opinions of me and thier opinions of my ministry... no matter ... it's all out of my hands now ...

We'll see what tomorrow and next week brings and we'll deal with it as it comes ...

In the meantime - I'm spending tomorrow travelling ... still have about 1250 kms to go ...

Well, remeber my second most oft voiced quote: ya better enjoy the ride cuz the destinationmay not be all the brochure cracked it up to be.

Safe and peaceful travels my good friend. These are heady days in many ways. I know you will use them wisely.
