Reflecting on jobs...

Have you ever thought of the jobs you had in the course of your life? What if you put that list together and just showed that to people and did not show your current or last job? Do you think they would be able to guess what your current job or your last job would be?

I don't know I was just reflecting on some of the ways I arrived where I am now.

My dad’s office – janitor
Jack in the Box – cashier
Fazoli’s – cashier
St. Mary’s University Catholic church – ministerial assistant
(Party City - Got the job but the very next day I was hired at Meadowbrook)
Meadowbrook UMC – Youth minister
Arlington Heights UMC – Youth minister

I get to preach in a couple of Sundays and looking for your thougths

The text for the day is John 3:14-21 which is:

And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
‘For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
‘Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgement, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.’

Any thoughts on this? Anything stick out to you? I really want to hear any response you might have to this. I will keep this post up for a few days in order to keep this conversation up and going.
