Last Sunday, my wife and I joined a new congregation, only the second church I have ever belonged to other than the one I was baptized and confirmed in, returned from afar to raise our family in, buried my mother in, and where I served as president, sang in the choir, and taught adult education.
But change is good. We have moved to a college town and retirement community. The new church is bristling with energy from all ages. We were one of twenty-one family units to join on Sunday, including 5 retired pastors and a professor or two. I have volunteered to teach adult ed, but this will be a pretty sophisticated crowd.
There is plenty of excitement about my novel about Paul the apostle to be published this fall, but I worry that it may be offensive to some.
