Yesterday's post got me thinking (well, there's a surprise!)
A big part of the reason I'm where I am now (training to be a clergyperson) instead of where I was 6 months ago (teaching physics) is that I felt that when I was teaching Physics I was doing something I could do, kind of like using my new lamp to prob the door open. When I was teaching the Bible, I felt that I was doing what I was designed to do.
I would't even begin to suggest that's essential in a job. But I think that if it's an option, it's important to go for it.
