My weight has been moving around alot and after family reunion, I am currently afraid to look. Tomorrow, I begin swimming lessons with my husband. We went to Wal-Mart tonight to buy me a pair of fancy black goggles. I will weigh myself tomorrow at the gym. Ugh.
After all I’ve been through this quarter I decided that I would not do C.P.E. (Clinical Pastoral Education) this summer. C.P.E. is basically an chaplaincy internship. They can be done at a hospice, hospital, nursing home, community center, etc. I want to do hospice but not this time. I’m not ready. I need to heal and recover and I want a summer to do me. So I sat down with Pastor AJ and put together a plan. I’ve added a few things to the list since then:
Launch the Women’s Group
Launch the Resume/Job Posting Ministry
Community Partnerships – Angel’s Touch, BIAMA, City Council Meetings
Preaching – Once per month
Teach a Bible Study – Once per month
Pastoral Care – Office hours twice per week
Shadowing PAJ – Go with AJ to do ministry stuff and talk about what to and how to and when to, etc.
Update the church website and get the blog going.
Get people in place to do the administration stuff after while I am doing my field placement next year.
That ought to learn me and make the summer fly by. I’m nervous about preaching and teaching. I’m afraid I will not be good but I also know it will be okay.
