It’s only May, but already 2012 has marked itself as a year for changing seasons. A new job, a new ministry, a new brother in law and a new choir. What else can possibly happen?
Well… a new church.
Okay, not actually a new church, more a return to an old one. A few weeks ago I was approached by the leadership at my old stomping grounds Darwin Memorial Uniting Church with a distress call. The incumbent organist has left to be with his family in Melbourne. I’ve been asked to move in and take over the running of the worship team there, which will be exciting and challenging. So the time has come to move.
It will be an interesting change shifting from a contemporary Pentecostal congregation to a more conservative Uniting Church congregation, but one of the advantages of being me is that I’m equally at home in either one. It’s one of the great side effects of NOT BEING PLANTED.
I’m still phasing myself out of Abundant Life church, so I haven’t quite taken up residence at DMUC yet. I’ll be there from July, after I get back from my sister’s wedding. So really, this post should have been saved up until then. But I don’t really have anything else to write about this week. So… yeah.
Make of that what you will.
