So as obvious as this post might be for this time of year, I really do think it is necessary for me to word vomit all the things that I am thankful for, especially as they relate to Marsh Chapel. This internship has changed my life, and I think taking inventory of all the small things helps the larger picture come into focus.
I am thankful for:
-attending worship with phenomenal music
-being a part of a worship community that embraces other faith traditions
-the ministry staff who put up with the occasional pun war via facebook
-the graduate interns, who show me that there is indeed life after (this round of) college
-the professional staff, who help me discern my next path
-the Gloria Patri that regularly gets stuck in my head
-my fellow undergrad interns for being the most fun people ever]
-for a brilliant weekly monologue (I believe you church people call them sermons) that gives me a fresh perspective
-the beautiful space I have the privilege to worship in every week
-an affirming faith community that lets me fully participate in the parish activities
-anyone out there who reads this blog
-knowing that I will be fed on Sundays and Mondays
So thank you guys so much. Advent approaches (my favorite time of year!) and I hope to continue to take stock of all God has blessed me with this year.
And finally, I leave you with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSBq8geuJk0
