My mother died while I was on vacation last week. Her services are Monday/Tuesday. I'm a mess. I'm not sure anyone warned me how this would go. I am doing my normal stuff one minute, and then weeping, and then sleeping twelve hours, and then not being able to sleep at all. My father died on September 11, 2009. Now I am an orphan. I don't feel as though any of my training has prepared me for this. I'm a pastor, I hold a doctorate, I've lived a life full of experiences. Here I am all jacked up. Someone should have said something.
Here we go starting another new thing at Redemptive Work! Oh sure, we've all blogged before. But now Redemptive Work has its own blog! We are naming our new blog Redemptive Words, a title we borrowed from Clayton Karrer which he so profoundly developed for our newsletter. Onward and upward!
