It has been exactly one year since everything blew up in my life — one year since I started my leave-of-absence which led to my resignation from the church… and all that went with that… lost friendships, community, livelihood, purpose, church, etc etc etc.
There is lots that I could reflect upon right now… a lot has changed for me. Some for the better, much not.
In many ways I have grown a lot and am in a pretty good place. In other ways, I am still healing from all that happened. In some ways I am amazed how far I have come in a year; in others I am deeply saddened by how little relational reconciliation has taken place.
But since today is Memorial Day, I am not going to do too much reflecting upon my own life. This is a day to reflect on those who have sacrificed greatly and paid greatly… there will be time to reflect more later.
