Trying to get back in the habit of updating this.

It's been a long week in a new way for me. The moments seem to take forever but I am slightly shocked that it is already Thursday. Work's been fine for the most part. Having difficulties on some costume racks I am working on adding shoe boards to. First someone borrowed the tools that I needed for a week which delayed the start. then I forgot some things in my plans. So the world turns.

A few weeks ago at the employee bowling night I met a girl from the resorts bakeshop. I got her number. We texted a bit but nothing came of it. Today I ran into her at lunch and we talked for a bit. I was invited to go ice skating with her and some friends. Turns out she has a boyfriend. But truthfully that wasn't the real disappointment of the night. The real disappointment was that she has co-workers from her department that were close in age, that would go out together.

That is completely different then what I have in my life right now. My department is older, I am the only full time person not married. Everyone else in the department is in their 40's and 50's. Not to say that I don't enjoy the people I work with. Jay and I had a wonderful day bullshitting while working at the nexstage last week. I have a great time hanging out with my accounting and IT friends. I just miss the camaraderie of hanging with people after a show or gig.

It's the same with church I exist in an age bubble. I have been blessed with a great congregation that I like worshiping with. Though I am a little unsure of some changes that have been happening. Finally getting a pastor is nice, him saying he believes we are in the end times is a little unsettling for me. I'll set that aside for the moment. the bigger concern is his thoughts that a church as a gathering place is an outdated model. I like the church as a gathering place, while the new pastor was talking about going out and actively converting people. I feel no call to try and convert friends and family.

I feel deeply that finding one's own path to God is key. I wouldn't be attending church as regularly as I do if me parents had forced me to church when I stopping going after confirmation. The years not going allowed me to realize what I was missing. I like going to church on Sundays, I don't think a bigger commitment is possible or the right thing for me.
