I got a postcard from my good friend Emma the other day. She is over in Germany and it was very nice to receive it. With this postcard came a whole load of questions about my future, which I pretty much have answers for, but which I shall share with Emma and a wider readership because hopefully it paints a wider picture and I am sure if Emma is curious others might be too!
When do you graduate? I Graduate in August 2012 i.e. this summer. It is very very soon
Have you thought what you will do after next year? Sort of! I am also exploring whether I am called to Presbyteral Ministry (like a Methodist “vicar” in short). So heading towards that. One possibility is to candidate during next year and start training the year after. Another possibility is to leave it a few years and candidate later. To a greater extent I am waiting on God to give me an idea on timings, and because I am a nervous sort would love it if it kept confirming that sense of call. Preferably with a signed letter from him or something!
There is also the possibility that in the immediate future I am called to stay in the Bangor&Holyhead Circuit and continue my involvement here. This is relatively new and something I am just beginning to explore. Sorry that is vague. If I am to stay here, then I will be in Bangor for a a few years then maybe candidate after that.
What if the don’t choose your OPP project? Such a good question, possibly needs a post to itself, but in sort I will stay in North Wales and seek any employment I can (within the law) to keep me. I love it here a bit too much to leave and God seems to be suggesting here is the place to be (nice when we agree).
NB – Blog name will be changed, just trying to work out what to!! A few ideas in my head but feel free to make suggestions!
