Yesterday, I made a huge step. At least it feels huge, and, I think, to many of you reading this blog, it might sound huge. I joined a new church. Now, one would think that this would not be a big deal. I am a seminarian, preparing for ministry, after all. I should have a home religous community now that I am a few thousand miles away from where I started. In fact, if you know me, it would be kinda odd for me not to, at least eventually, settle into one faith community during most of my stay here in Berkeley. Perhaps not quite this soon, but likely in the first year sometime.
