Kennedy at Seminary

Updating again

I guess the mourning period for the Mavs ended a long time ago. I've moved on with life. I'm down in Houston doing my vicarage now. This church is so awesome! I've met so many cool people so far. I'm having fun being a vicar and not a student. I'm working primarily with people my age and younger: 20-somethings, middle and high schoolers. I participate in the worship service every Sunday. I have a lot of involvement in small groups, which I'm finding is a key to developing authentic relationships -- and ministry is all about relationships, a big lesson I'm learning here.

Two of the small groups are for young adults. You can check out their blogs by clicking on the Kairos links on the right side of the screen. Kairos is a Greek word meaning "appointed time." One group meets at my house. One meets about 45 minutes away in a loft in downtown Houston. Also, you can read an article I wrote about young adult ministry for the seminary's student publication, Around the Tower (page 9).

I'm enjoying having a huge house to myself. I'm learning how to cook. I made a chicken dish the other night wth pasta and carrots. I tasted ... well ... gross, but at least I tried. I'm getting better at cooking, part of which involves choosing easier cooking options. I'm discovering more items at the grocery store that I have never used before. Today I made a very tasty lunch of tortillas with chicken and cheddar cheese, with strawberries on the side and glass of milk. Yum.

  • Hey Chris! Glad to hear from you and see that things are going well for you! I suppose it's probably nice to be back in the "homeland" again and let that accent try to come back from hiding.

    I think that your blog idea is a good one, and I think I'm going to start one of those myself to help people keep in touch. God's blessings, and have fun!
