That's How the Light Gets In

So, for those who have followed this blog for a while (and bless you for that!) you may remember that back in 2008, I began a discernment process for the vocational diaconate.

I have been accepted as a postulant.

When I began this process, I remember expressing my concern that my own imperfections might unfit me for ministry--my parish discernment committee suggested that my first spiritual autobiography read like an effort to point out all the reasons I should not be ordained. But four years later, I've learned that Leonard Cohen does more than write great songs; here's a bit of wisdom that I've come to cherish, since a classmate of mine reminded me of it.

So, we move forward, into the next phase of the journey. And, as ever, the good Doctor can be relied on for encouragement.
