i always liked the rollar coasters


so i'm standing there. probably accomplishing my job more fully and completely than any other person in the company at the moment when my phone rang. '...sorry that i have to be the one to tell ya this...they've decided to eliminate your position...' and my first reaction was shock. then, i didn't feel much at all. and now... i'm just downright excited. it puts me in the best position possible. now that everyone has had just a small taste of my gifts, things couldn't look better if you scripted it. not chronos. but kairos. the moment. the precipice. staring right over the edge and it is gorgeous. and this time i'm gonna jump with all my might. something in my heart is telling me it's time to fly...

and i think a church might have started in a bar. i'm not 100% positive on that yet, but it's looking that way. pray about it, will you?

oh! i am starting a petition for an update on zaavanco complete with stories and pictures. will you help me in this movement? will you join in the cry?

Been watching for one and an Erin update would be nice, too.

Did you lose your job, pizza man?

jON said...

for the time being. so, while things play themselves out, i will be back to delivering for a bit.

hopefully, it will not be long.

so that's 2 people who want to hear from erin and zaavan!!! this thing is gathering steam!!!!

Dena G said...

Count my vote, too! :-)

Jump, Jon...I can't wait to hear about the flight.

The Zaavon updates are too few and far between. But when he is a favorite nephew, I am a little biased.

And yes, there were more than a few churches, in the 1700's, that started in bars. Then, you could not sell alcohol on Sunday, and not wanting to lose revenue, offered the taverns to fledgling churches for a fee on Sunday. Now I understand you are probably stating that the Bar will be operating at the time. In that vane, you may be the first, but I doubt it.

I'll vote for a Zaavan update too.

jON said...

is 5 votes enough? will it be the encouragement that is needed? i hope so.

as to the church... i ask because i have no frame of reference for this sort of thing. what started as a few people who would come over to the house every so often has turned into a group of people who meet with each other once or twice a month to laugh and share with one another and get involved in each others' lives more and more deeply.

and of course since the worship element, in any sort of traditional sense(singing), is absent at this point, it leaves me with wondering what is going on. the group is growing and deepening in relationship as well as converstaions about god and things spiritual. and growth is happening there as well. just not sure exactly what it is or where it is going or what my role should be in facilitating it if anything at all. because if anything IS happening, i do realize that it is not my doing. i am only a vessel.

as to the job situation... i have sent out my proposal to those incharge of our immediate area to see if they want to continue utilizing me even if their superiors are so far removed and shortsighted to see what is really good for our area. pray that whatever god wishes to occur will occur unhindered. if here, great. if god is removing me for something else... that's great as well. just curious to see where this train is heading.

Jon, I'm sorry to hear you lost your job, especially because it seemed like a great one with better hours, etc.!

However I know that God has great things for you...so can't wait to see what that is.

I love you and I'll be praying for you & Erin. I want a Zaavan update too!!

By the way, I'm going to write another comment for you on your "Letter to Mom".

jON said...

i won't lift the veil on the anonymous person here, but he/she has added something i believe to be of value to the "open letter" discussion.

and the cries for zaavanco keep coming... ;)

jON said...

here it is. zaavaco.

jON said...

Dena G said...
