New Neighbor: So, word is you go to seminary.

Me: Yep.

NN: Well my birthday’s on Monday and I’ll be 33. I keep thinking that’s how old Jesus was when he died.

Me: Oh… Well happy birthday! I hope you have a better year than Jesus did. He did eventually rise from the dead and all, but still… Not exactly a fun year.

NN: I’m sorry. That was really awkward. You probably think I brought that up because you’re in seminary.

Me: No worries. They make us take a whole semester on “how to handle that awkward moment when your neighbors find out you go to seminary.”

NN: Really?

Me: No.

NN: Haha

Husband. Dad. Pastor. I like to capture moments, pull their threads, and see what unravels. Lead well, read well, think well. And grace. Lots of grace.
