The Vote is In

... and I have been called. I am the pastor of Fairlawn Baptist Church in Dunbar, West Virginia.

I'm still a bit numb. Earlier this year, I spoke repeatedly at a church near here, and was sure they were going to vote me in as pastor at any time (in fact, I stepped down as Books editor at Blogcritics in anticipation). Never happened. I'm still not sure I was ever actually voted on.

So I'm not sure I ever really thought about the vote happening. And now it has, and I'm there. We're going to stay in Ohio until the end of September, when the baby is due (a boy!), and then move. I've got to give notice at my job, and then I'm going to commute a couple times each week.

And I've got to find some work there, since I'll be bivocational (at least to start). Shouldn't be a problem -- schools always need good substitute teachers, after all.

I appreciate all your prayers, and will need them now more than ever.
