On the Seventh Day of Christmas

By Tim Butler | Posted at 23:21

Well this is it. The last post of 2012, the tenth year of asisaid. It is amazing how many things have changed in the last 120 months, some of which have been chronicled thoroughly on this blog and which faithful readers have journeyed along with me on. I'm looking forward to 2013 and the new challenges and discoveries that lie ahead. I wonder what all will occur in this first year after the end of the Mayan long count calendar?

This past year has presented many challenges, but also a bounty of joys. A year ago just 17 days from now was when the Missouri Presbytery approved my ordination and call to serve at Grace Presbyterian Church. Nine months ago, I was ordained into that call — which seems both like a split second ago and an eternity. Over the year, I had the privilege to officiate three weddings, and officiate the sacrament of baptism three times and the Lord's Supper eight times. A year ago last May, I completed my first year teaching at Lindenwood and first year of Ph.D. studies. It has been a fascinating year.

I'm very thankful for all of the ways God continues to bless me, with my wonderful family, wonderful friends, wonderful opportunities to serve in the church and a wonderful place to teach. I am looking forward to 2013.

Roughly how long ago were you aware of your calling to pastoral ministry?

Re: On the Seventh Day of Christmas

Ed, I first sensed a call when I was 16 or so, but kind of shoved it off in pursuit of other paths. It became clear to me early in my undergraduate years that I should go to seminary and God showed me my mentor's model of teaching and pastoral ministry as an example I felt called to follow.
