Future Possibiilities

With next year looking like SSU will be offering less in the way of work (although they pay me at adjunct rates and do not pay me for some courses, the pay Judy and I have received has been welcome), it was interesting to hear the Anglican rector announce this morning that he has resigned in order to move to another parish in another diocese. It seems to me that that offers me at least the possibility of interim work. I would consider putting my name forward as Peter Mills’ successor, assuming that I could work out an arrangement so that it fit well with my work at SSU. It would curb my travel, which might be very welcome, but it would also provide a stable place of ministry and a stable basis for being here. I have indeed written the Archdeacon to tell him that I am available for whatever he thinks me fit for. He has yet to respond, so we will see what comes of that. If it is a God thing, then something will come of it, and if not, I suppose I should be very happy. What is interesting to me is that Judy is happy with this development, for it supports what she wants to do rather than takes me away from home.
