The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity, with two Boys in Hats concerts, an ongoing adult education program at Trinity United Church in Warren, NJ, and a ski trip. The big news, however, is that yesterday and today were my candidating weekend at the First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, of Norwalk, CT, and that, after worship this morning, the church called me to be their new senior pastor!!!
I've just gotten home and am exhausted from the weekend's activities, but am thrilled that I have been called by such a wonderful congregation. FCC, Norwalk is a welcoming multi-racial, multi-cultural congregation of 614 members, right in the heart of the city, and they have a long history of being involved in justice work. The plan is that I'll start work there on April 1 and that my family will move there to join me in early May.
I'll blog about all of this in more detail as things unfold. Right now, though, I'm going to take a nap.
