Peace

I was just thinking a bit about my adventure to Cape Town and the eager anticipation I felt as I took a dive into the unknown. In my first blog post of that journey I talked about, Kairos, a word/idea that has greatly influenced my life.  If you want to read the complete blog go to http://schanell5.blogspot.com/2009_01_01_archive.html

Cliffs notes version: Kairos is a time, not measured by the clock, where God has chosen “the right moment” or the “opportune” time. Its the time when your old comfort zone, your old ideas, your old relationships, your old images of God, and your old ways of thinking are shaken up. Everything is turned upside down. The “old” does not work anymore. You enter a crisis, an opportunity, to forge new ideas, new relationships, new images of God, new ways to think about old ideas. You build a new comfort zone.

So I am entering into a new Kairos moment/season. However, I  have to say that this time around is a bit different. I feel an overwhelming peace, yet at the same feel inadequate, under-qualified, terrified, and maybe even a bit unprepared. Luckily I have some amazing friends and family that have come alongside to encourage, support, and give me the necessary kick in the butt.

Thank you to all of you wonderful people in my life!! I will miss you all!
