What I’m thankful for

By lucchesi

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

 

Thanks, y’all!
