I remember the "What I love...What I miss..." game from my childhood. There always seemed to be a need to make lists, distinctions and categories when I was younger. Perhaps I need that boundary now. A new ministry is such a change and such a transition that maybe checking a few boxes is a healthy thing.
What I miss about Atlanta is -
Twelve years of relationships and community
A great chiropractor, pediatrician, and dentist
My spiritual places of renewal
What I love about Eau Claire is -
I can get anywhere in less than 15 minutes
A fantastic farmer's market
the warm people
my new Credit Union
My lovely congregation -the people - the building
I have the best office manager EVER
The Episcopal church bells that ring RIGHT in the middle of annoucements on Sunday morning. OK - I love them every time, but then.
I know what cheese curds and walleye are now. I like cheese curds. I haven't been brave enough to try walleye yet.
