Tuesday? Nah. I’m talking about seven days from now when the congregation of Athens Christian Church votes whether or not to appoint me a deacon. Marv, our preacher, informed me not long ago that in the latest round of nominations my name had come up, so I agreed to be considered so long as the current elders and deacons knew I was job hunting and might well be moving some time in the next seventeen months or so. He in turn talked to them and let me know they were fine with it, and I agreed unconditionally.
The next day Emmanuel College contacted me asking if I’d come to campus for a job talk. I admit that I’m usually slow to conflate circumstance and providence, but whatever that sort of timing happens to be, I’ll take it.
