From Paducah With Love
We started the drive from Iowa City to Atlanta today, and I'm ending my day in Paducah, Kentucky. Driving for eight hours gave me a lot of time to think. I started my drive asking, "Why in the world am I doing this?" And over the course of my drive I came up with some good answers. I want to be in ministry. I want to help people see all their neighbors as fellow children of God. I want to teach Biblical scholarship and theology in the church setting. I want to help people develop their prayer lives. I want to do mission work in the local and global settings. In the end, I want to make disciples for the transformation of the world. If moving to Atlanta will help me accomplish those goals, then it's worth it. That's why I'm doing this.
