Good times on an island

Posted: Thursday, April 28, 2011 by Michael Elkins in

I wanted to basically just blog and talk about my love of "getting together".  if hanging out were a sport I would be in the Super Bowl every year.  Specifically today, I got to hang out with other people in the same profession as myself...Youth Pastors.  As you can imagine it is a lunch where we discuss body sounds/odors, crazy childhood stories, and other sorts of shenanigans.  The best part is though, I feel like there actually a group of people where I belong.  Sometimes, ministry can get pretty lonely.  There are days if you wonder what you do really matters and if you made the correct choice.  One of the best fixes...friendships.  I love having people in my boat with me that I can just have fun with.  Hence, I love the people I work with.  Also, because I know he will read this, Jeff Selph and other CYL members really make ministry feel like a party on an island!  I love my job and what I do!
