Not since the Summer of 2005 have I been to Germany. Five summers before that I went annually with a Christian singing group through the Baptist Colliegiate Ministry at FSU called Undivided.
This Thursday I go back.
I am going with Undivided although this time I go in an entirely different role. I will not be singing. I am going as a patriarch of sorts. I will be leadingt he group every morning in a time of calling to mission. I will be a voice of encouragement, admonishment, and love. I will be there to guide and support. But mainly, I will be there to help them return to Jesus as often as possible.
I have been needing a break. Even after resigning from management at the Coffee Pub, I still don't feel like I've been allowed to be free of it. Perhaps it is my fault. I kept a job there. But several weeks away, serving God as my only purpose, as the only thing worth living for, sounds just like what my soul needs.
I hope I will have access to the internet often so that I can update any readers I still have. Thank you for reading. Thank you for listening. Thank you for praying.
