Upon ending EfM year One

I am sad.

Today I ended year one of my EfM course. It has been a great part of my spiritual journey & I’ve gotten accustomed to meeting on Tuesdays with my small but very vibrant group.  We’ll resume again in September & { God-willing} I’ll be back for Year Two. It has been great & it i true that I’m coming away from Year One with more questions than answers. Perhaps it is the good literature scholar in me, but I am ok with having unanswered questions from Holy Scripture.

 I definitely have more of a sense of who I am….& that all the pain of the past is part of what makes one grow. The old adage” what won’t kill ya will make ya stronger” holds true & I could not be more at peace & full of joy than I am in my Episcopal parish & diocesan communities.

 At this point I still do not know what God has in store for me. But I’ve learned that God works in God’s own time, something that madeline L’Engle called ” Karios”.  Our salvation history is still being written & rewritten…& we * are* God’s people.
