The other day, after my graduation ceremony, Kati (my wife) was waiting in a line outside of a bathroom. She started talking to the wife of another person who had graduated and was asked, “Where are y’all serving?”
More recently, Kati was asked “what our ministry was going to be?”
My wife, who is a wonderful person, has had to deal with me questioning everything for the past couple of years, and continues to show me the grace in dealing with me questioning everything still. I once thought I was called to be a full-time vocational pastor but now much has changed. So, she often answers these questions with a simple, “He wants to teach.”
I share her frustration with having to answer this question because we both know that the question itself is loaded and it is loaded in more than one way. Plus, most people do not care to hear a long diatribe.
So my question is this… If someone asked you what your ministry was, what do you think would be the best (i.e. most Biblical) answer?
