Yes, it’s true- we’re moving. To Pennsylvania. We have accepted a call to Co-Pastor Christ Covenant Church in Harleysville, PA (which is about 40 minutes north of Philadelphia). It became official on November 8th, and life has been a whirlwind since then. Well, life was a whirlwind before then, but now things are moving forward at incredible speed.

It’s a tough time. And an exciting time. It’s the part of pastoral ministry that I struggle so much with–leaving one community I love for another community I love (what little I know of it at this point), because God calls us. God calls us out of one ministry…. and into another. And the roller coaster of emotions continues–the sadness at leaving, the joy at going someplace new… and the peace at knowing that God is leading.

Our house is on the market, a photographer for Century 21 came by the other day, (but the above photo is mine) and many of our waking, non-working moments are spent sorting, recycling, organizing, trashing, and packing stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. Lots of stuff that we don’t want to move. And some that we do.

Meow!!.. Halloween 2009

First, a disclaimer: My good camera has been shipped to some location in this country, and is hopefully being fixed sooner than later. In the meantime, I’m using my old trusty Kodak, which apparently is no longer as trusty. So I’ve been quite frustrated. However, Halloween was still fun with a toddler, who loves saying “Meow”.

KajsaHalloween - 1On Friday, we went down to State Street, which had a kids’ trick-or-treating in and out of stores. It was quite nice. Yesterday we went to the mall, which also had trick-or-treating. Fun, but crazy and over-crowded, and a bit scary for Kajsa, but mostly fun.

Kajsa loves the cat costume. She wore it around the house this afternoon and evening as well. It was an easy costume–she had the pants, I bought the shirt, and bought the ears and tail. Easy, fun, successful Halloween.
