Tomorrow is 2 Advent.
Per tradition at Small Parish, it is also the Sunday that we’ll hold the Annual Parish Meeting. We’ll all gather for ONE Mass at 9 A.M. followed by the meeting & then the monthly potluck luncheon.
Anyhow, we elect two new vestry members at this meeting. I’m on the ballot as a possible new vestryperson. We have two other fabulous people who are also on the ballot for the vestry election, so there is a good chance that I might not be elected. Although I am a bit nervous about the election tomorrow I’m a bit reserved about serving on vestry for three years.
For many reasons, I feel called to at least put my name on the ballot for vestry at this time in my ” walk with God” & I will do my best if elected. But if I am not elected I will not feel too sad. Honestly, I am not the ” board meeting” sort of person & I would much rather be active in ministries such as EYC & assisting at the altar as an acolyte. If it is God’s will that I serve my parish as a vestryperson, I can only promise to do my best if elected. And with the spiritual growth that I’ve experienced this year, I am ready to move a bit out of my ” comfort zone” if I am called to do so.
