From the Other Side of Call NightPosted: April 27, 2015
It’s a big week for both LC-MS seminaries–Vicarage Placements and Call Nights are here!
That means it’s been a year since I anxiously waited to hear where God was calling my husband. Life looks drastically different for us now than it did then. We faced so many unknowns: What sort of church would we go to? What would life be like with our unborn child? Where would we live? How far would we be from family? Would we have to buy our own home?
Now we have significantly less known unknowns (because despite our best laid plans, we never fully know what life holds in store for us). Babykins made her grand entrance 7 months ago. We are slowly settling into our life in a small town and looking forward to having more than a year to adjust. Best of all, we never again have to go through the drama that is known as Call Night–a.k.a. The night you receive life-altering news during a church service in front of a couple hundred people.
Instead, I’ll watch this year’s service online and excitedly/nervously wait to hear where God is calling dear friends. Prayers for peace for all of you awaiting placements and calls!
