This morning I did something that I’ve only done once before: I turned in a two weeks’ notice. I resigned from my current job working for Southeastern Seminary in their IT department, and in two weeks, I will start a new job with CtiPath.
My family and I are excited about this change. While I enjoyed working for the seminary – and I especially enjoyed the people who I worked with – the seminary pays very little, so I’ve had to work extra jobs for the 10 years since I started working for them. You see, at first, I came to seminary to be a professional, vocational pastor, so this job was supposed to be temporary. When my beliefs about “professional, vocational ministry” changed, I had to change the direction of my vocation as well.
Also, for the last several years, I’ve been in the dissertation phase of my PhD studies. I have not had time to work on my dissertation (or anything else) because of those extra jobs. Now, that should change. I plan to have more time to work on my dissertation.
What about blogging? Will my blogging change? Perhaps. I don’t know. Blogging takes much less time for me than many people think. However, it’s possible that my blogging frequency or schedule will change. We’ll find out in the next few weeks.
So, I just wanted to keep you posted about what is going on with us personally. This is an exciting time for us, and we’re looking forward to what God has in store through this new job.
