Day #247

September 4, 2014

It is official and the news can now be publicly shared. God has called me to a new place. My last Sunday at the congregation I currently serve will be October 5th and I begin a new call in a new state in mid-November.

Yes, I am excited. Yes, I am sad. Yes, I believe this truly is God’s call. Yes, I will continue to pray for the congregation I am leaving and the one where I will be going to serve. Yes, there is lots to do (including getting a house sold!). Yes, I am nervous. Yes, my anxiety is high.

And God says, be at peace. Have trust. Take in the positive and thresh out the negative. Allow time for sharing of feelings and emotions. And all will be well.



  1. Sardis Lutheran Church and the Sardis community have been so blessed by your ministry! I am so thankful for you! As you continue your ministry at a new and distant place may you be blessed with peace, contentment, joy, excitement and the love of a multitude of new church friends. Pastor Anna, you and Doug will continually be in my heart and prayers! Love and blessings.....

  2. Prayers for God's peace and nothing but positivity through this process; I am so happy to have found this blog today! Hugs to you, my friend~
