Something very exciting happened recently and it came about unexpectedly and quickly. A new position called a Connections Coordinator was created at my church and I felt a call. I entered a period of discernment and tried to convince myself it wasn’t the right “fit” for me and yet, I still felt called. My church felt the call too, apparently, and I began working in this 25-hour-a-week position on April 3rd.
It is incredibly satisfying work and it involves collaborating with some pretty great colleagues. The discernment process also gave me a label for my vocation. I am a connector. And my Soul Librarian work and this new position are both important expressions of this vocation.
Soul Librarian is a platform to help connect soul readers with reading and other spiritual tools to build soulful lives. While the Connections Coordinator will help members of my faith community forge stronger connections through worship, fellowship, service and learning opportunities to build meaningful lives in a supportive community.
I admit that I have neglected my Soul Librarian work during the first few weeks in this position. But that changes this month. I will tackle two themes in May in order to catch up – Faith and Friendship. I also have several book reviews in the works.
So stay tuned and happy reading!
