Epworth Project

Finally got my application filled out for the Epworth Project. Now all I have to do is write some essays and get two letters of recommendation (and who are going to write those? No one who's known me over the past 20 years or so has known me to be particularly religious/spiritual, except for the past few months. I guess I'll have to ask for Ryan's advice...)

I wonder if it'll be enough that I've shown such an interest in the program? I hope so...

Had a really good and informative meeting with Ryan. He assured me that they're not looking for the Pope, Dalai Lama, Mother Theresa, etc., to be part of the project (i.e., not the most religious/spiritual people in the world), just normal people who are ministry- and mission-oriented (and he and one other resident have commented on how I've managed to minister to them!) He also told me that I probably have more people who could recommend me for the program than I think...

He also urged me not to focus so much on getting into Epworth housing that I neglect the fact that God may have another direction for me to go in. I just think that living "in community" for awhile (however long it might be) would be the best way for me to learn and grow in spiritual and missional wisdom. But it's definitely something I'll need to think and pray about.
