One of the most exciting and terrifying parts of ministry is the realization that when you answer this call you find yourself being brought into a variety of life events and circumstances that you might otherwise never be a part of. This is a daunting, but yet powerful because it reminds you of all the ways God is working in the people around us. My best friend is getting legally married at the courthouse on Tuesday in Asheville, but she and her finance asked me to put together a commitment ceremony for them to name and celebrate the life they are beginning with each other. Because I am not yet ordained, marriages aren’t something that I’m qualified to do, so instead this service was built on non-denominational and spiritual liturgy. It was an amazing opportunity to be asked to plan and lead a service, and it was a powerful experience to witness the love that was present.
