I'm in the right "business"

We were on our way out of town - not far, just to family for dinner - yesterday afternoon, when I got the kind of call you really only get as a pastor, on my cell. It was the kind of "drop everything and tend to this" situation that everyone has from time to time, but not entirely. As we drove back into Columbus, I told Bridgette - "Being a pastor means certain sacrifices. But I'm telling you this, I'd rather make a sacrifice for a situation like this, than simply because I've got a big project due, or a major client is coming into town. This is real life."

I've had tons of moments over the years, since recognizing that ministry is where my heart was, as well as God's call. And this is just one more of those moments that said - there's nothing else I would rather be doing, than being in ministry...

You are definitely in the right "business." I love seeing your heart come through on posts like this one. I have a lot to learn from you and from your experiences.
