I am greatly frustrated.  That is perhaps why I have not posted in a while.  I am frustrated because of this LCMS process of becoming a Minister in this church.

I am at odds with my brothers because I want a call to a church that 10 of us are in line for.

Should I pray for them to have that call?  Or me?  Or for God’s Will to be done?  Yes, for God’s Will.

Still, the whole matter about being placed into a congregation is giving me short nights of rest and long, angering, frustrating days of anxiety.  I am short in patience, short on energy, and short of desire for much of anything but conversation and beer.
