I got the call –

4 Mar
And it Southeastern Minnesota for me!
The call actually came later last night, around 9pm, when I was heading through the door to go out with friends.  The bishop from this synod – which surrounds Rochester, Albert Lea, Red Wing and beautiful countryside of the like – welcomed me to the synod, gave me a few dates to put on my calendar to meet up within the synod, and told me that he was a fellow Luther College grad.  (Always a good thing.)  It was a short phone call but I was excited to get the news.
And I’m pretty stoked about where I’ll be.  Southwestern and southeastern Minnesota synods were my preferences and I think I’m quite content that it is SE.  Being in SE, I’m as close to home as I could be while in region three.  Chances are I’ll actually be closer to home than I am here while in seminary.  This makes events I have lined up in the fall [weddings and a Luther College homecoming] much more possible.  I’ve heard glorious things about the synod from classmates who went through candidacy in SE and know of one other person who is assigned in that direction – and it’s a friend [who I accept and enjoy despite an odd overall – the clothing item – fascination], which will be great to have as the process continues.
Speaking of friends, I have some great ones.  I feel so incredibly supported by those friendly people in my life throughout this whole process.  Last night, I met up with a group of friends and we laughed like I  haven’t laughed in a long time.  Lots of people have been wondering, asking, waiting with me as I wanted my phone to ring last night.  I felt the facebook embrace as people responded when I posted where I was headed [My sister’s comment?  “Proud of you!”], and I know that there were faithful blog readers waiting too.  [Sorry for holding out until this morning to post!  Maybe I’ve ended up teaching you patience, Sharon? :)]  Moral of the story: Thanks, friends.
