Light at the End of the Tunnel

Light at the End of the Tunnel

The tunnel has been long, but the light is shining brighter and brighter!  No trajedy or crisis, just a long journey of not having much time to do things that are important but non-essential.  It has been full and rich time, but I have to admit that I’m looking forward to having time to blog, review wines, and maybe even get some sleep!

We’ve added two new members to the church’s staff — Neil and Sue.  They are outstanding additions to our team, and will take so many things off of our plates.  I’m looking forward to having the chance to focus on so many things that have been neglected or attended to with limited energy and time.  We are not unique being short-staffed, but I am grateful that we are once again fully staffed!

It somehow seems appropriate that this “emergence” is happening during Lent.  It’s a season of journeying and of emerging.  This literal emergence certainly overlays my experience of Lent and Easter this year.

All this to say, the cafe is open again!  Revjavadude will be sipping a cup of coffee, the thoughts will be flowing, and the conversation will continue…

  1. Beautiful post and photo–a profound Resurrection image.

  2. Hey man – hope that things are REALLY going well for you and the new staffers since March – and that you are really seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Keep catching up!

  3. Jeff, wonderful post! After all the years I’ve been a part of the church, I’ve never associated Lent and/or Easter with the idea of “emerging” and yet, I find it to be a perfect fit for me this year, also! In so many ways! This is very helpful for me. Great visual.
