Updates and Unemployment

Some of you may be wondering what’s been happening since the move back to Savannah. So for all you kind folk who have wondered-and the unfortunate few who happened upon this post-let me tell you.

I knew moving to Savannah would bring about a time of reflection and discernment, namely in regards to vocation. Am I going to continue on in ministry as a vocation, or will I hold off joining a church staff indefinitely? That’s still in the air. Will I pursue teaching, whether on the secondary level or in higher education? Still in the air, though I plan to move towards either, or both, of these possibilities in the near future.

On the unemployment side of things, I cannot say that I am officially unemployed because of the work provided by my gracious father-in-law, Paul of Paul Kennedy Catering. I’ve doing my share of setting up events and keeping an eye on buffet lines. But looking long term, I am seeking a job that supports the family and offers a sense of self-fulfillment. So right now I have my sights set on an admissions counselor position at Savannah College of Art and Design. I’ll let you know how it goes. Currently I am waiting to set up an initial phone interview–that is how they sniff out the crazies I suppose.

If you’re the praying kind, please pray for the interview process at SCAD. This job would allow me to do some more schooling at night in order to get a teacher licensure for secondary ed (history). Thanks for you caring and praying.

Grace to you

    Courageous endeavors are many times stabs in the dark. My God’s grace go ahead of you my friend!

    Thank you Gary for the kind wishes. And thank you for your wise counsel along the way. I can’t tell you how much it helped to process with you and have you ask the right questions.
