A Job Offer from North Carolina

Brevard, North Carolina wants Paul to teach over there. They won’t pay for moving expenses. But if Paul wants to move his entire family across the entire United States and if he can support his family entirely taking a $20,000 a year cut, he’s welcome to join them.

I didn’t realize we’re in the ministry business.

That’s what I think one minute. The next minute, I think …

on the other hand, in this economy, ministry work is better than nothing. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Teaching in that kind of environment has its perks. Remember the insurance and other benefits. Steady income is desireable.

Paul’s going to sleep on it.

I wonder what the outcome will be?

  1. When Paul (the apostle) prayed for the fledgling Christian communities, he emphasized the importance of the gift of discernment AND confirmation by the Holy Spirit for the direction of those communities to be sound and in accordance with the Will of the Father. Are you guys getting any confirmation? There will always be human-driven arguments for and against. What is in Paul’s gut? (your hubby, not the apostle) Does confirmation and discernment bubble up from the gut? Is the Holy Spirit telling you to go? Forget the money and the pros and cons…is the Holy Spirit telling you to go?

Or to stay? there is a fight ahead with either choice, neither will be easy nor smooth. But either can be timeful, which is your hope!
