The Stephen Ministry training coordinator from my church left me a message on Wednesday telling me I’d been accepted into the program and asking me officially if I wanted to join. She said she was hoping I’d reply with a “resounding yes,” so the next day I did. 🙂 I had to leave a message for her, but I made sure to say that my yes was a resounding one. 😉 The training starts next month and goes till April, and then I guess I’ll start meeting with whoever they assign to me who needs help.
Ah, now maybe I’ll feel like I’m doing something with my life. I feel like I’m naturally suited for this kind of ministry, since I’m often in this type of reflective listening mode with my friends. I’m looking forward to honing my skills during the training.
