Recently the third season of the popular show Stranger Things came out to polarizing results. Some thought it was a return to form after a weak second season, but others couldn’t bear seeing the innocent children on the show grow up, form romantic relationships, and struggle with their feelings.
There was shock (and a little awe) when I told the kids on the way to the sled hill that I had never once been sledding. It made it all the more special as they gave me pointers to go faster and casually told me, “you’ll be fine” when I looked at them in horror after being told to just bail out at the bottom (for the record, it was more than fine).
The turkey (and people) have been stuffed and we’re off to the next big season… Advent! That’s right, it’s not Christmas yet. Despite the lights, shopping, and fluctuating Holiday plans, we still have the work of Advent to do.
Thank you so much to everyone who welcomed me to St. Tim’s this past week! I’m really honored to join this amazing community as the Youth and Children Minister. Excitement and joy are the words that best describe my feelings, but I would be lying if I said, as with any new call, there isn’t some unease or doubt.
