Tomorrow is the revelation of Regional Assignments for graduating ELCA MDiv seminarians. I'm really going to be a pastor. With all the excitement and unknown in the coming days, I keep coming back to one of my favorite prayers. I think it resonates with each of us as followers of Christ.
O God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Evangelical Lutheran Worship)
