I have been absent from this world for a while. I am preparing to leave Missouri and head to Illinois for a year on a vicarage assignment. I am hoping through the nest year I will be more faithful in corresponding what is transpiring in Staunton through this medium.

Chapter the Fifth: If you do not like what you are doing, go and do something else.

These are perhaps the most profound words I have ever heard in any song. Words that are very sinple but seem to be overlooked by so many people in the world today. And perhaps they are not overlooked, but more to the point looked at and then stepped over or pushed aside.
I have friends that graduated high school with me that did not go on to College, and are now living a life of one track monotony. Wake up, Work, Bed, over and over; not to say that routine does not work for anyone, but what about when that middle section is the source of a down trodden heart and attitude? If you do not like what you are doing there has to be something out there that you like, go and do it. Simple Simple instructions that anyone can live by. Perhaps the very theme of mission trips, and mission work for some people...Perhaps.
I think it is a little different theme, if you love what you are doing and who you are doing it for, here go do this. That might be a little more accurate for some of us. If you love what you are doing and you know that the only way you are doing it is by the power of the Holy Spirit and those two other beautiful beings of the Trinity, they say here Good and Faithful Servant, go into this world that we have created and bring the people the news of Me and Us. If you know with your heart and confess with your mouth the we are the "I AM" go out and walk the path that we have prepared for you and remember ME always on your journey, praise ME always (the best thing about speaking about the Trinity is that you can go back and forth between personal and plural pro nouns). What is the theme of your journey, I can guess for some of you it still has selfish roots as it once did and still in many cases does for me. Whatever it is, Semper Theos, Semper Fi, Always God and Always Forward.
Just Going...
