Dan’s Day 10 of 29 Gifts – Woody Allen

This Saturday afternoon Hannah and I make a point of going to the open house to greet Rachel, the candidate for Associate Pastor at our church.  We are in full Woody Allen mode for the occasion.  90% of life is just showing up.

Day 10 90% quote

In the United Church of Christ, the congregation decides who to call as pastor.  Rachel is here for the weekend to meet various committees and individual church members; she’ll preach tomorrow.  Immediately after the service, church members will vote yeah or nay.  Showing up this afternoon to support her is my gift.

There in the church parlor, Hannah and I greet her.  She’s tall with a warm and welcoming smile.  I thank her for considering us, knowing it’s not just us deciding on her but she on us as well.  I got my fingers and toes crossed we vote as a congregation to call her.
