I love doing interim or transition work, at least I used to. I did not realize, though, that my ability to speak with David nearly every day, helped make this exhausting work fun. I know it may become fun again, but I'm concerned that right now I cannot do the work these two congregations need for me to do.
Yesterday I was in a real blue funk. I kept wanting to reach for the phone to speak with him. It's not that we often spoke of what was on my plate, but after patiently listening to his latest ideas on medicine or (his latest) how he could contribute to the issue of overpopulation in the world, he usually had some uplifting things to say about me or us or nothing in particular.
