Someone asked on the RevGals Facebook page today about what to say / how to pray in a difficult ministry situation.
Not ordained, I didn't comment there (others might have better suggestions) but my immediate thought was, "your ministry is your presence."
I received the gift today of waiting in a conference room with two colleagues who are in the midst of tender personal situations. There had been confusion about the location of the meeting, so we had a good 20 minutes to talk while that got figured out and the other party showed up. In the meantime, I was so amazed and blessed by the opportunity to just sit in the chair and hear them share. Nothing terribly personal or emotional...but just sharing. Being in relationship. Being there. Listening actively.
Holy ground, y'all.
