Just Fine, Thanks

A few years ago I set out on this priesting endeavor, and, I have to admit, I had it in my head I was going to become a good priest.  Of course, I didn't know what that meant, really, and I know I set up all kinds of projections as to what that could possibly entail.  I'm kind of embarrassed, really, to own some of the preconceptions I came to this with.


Along the way something better has happened.  I just became more… me.  Yep, the same old guy I've always been, but with one big difference: I'm less and less inclined to try to be something other (whether different, or more, or less) than what I am. 

I don't know that that makes me a good anything, but I don't care.  I wouldn't trade this for anything!
