Wagons East!

I'll cut to the chase:
We're moving to the Toronto area in just under three weeks. I've accepted a ministry job there, but I didn't mention it here until after I got a chance to let the band know (which I did this past Sunday).
What could possibly make me give up a great band, a cool home group, and life in the beautiful city of Winnipeg?

Basically, I feel that this position will put me in a place of making a difference. I'll be part of a team of youth ministry people who share similar journeys and visions for what the church could be, and I'll be in a place where I can actually help set the culture for youth ministry for an entire denomination.
 I've always believed, ever since this blog started, that "we're far more dangerous as Reformers than we are as Protesters." This is an opportunity to put my money where my mouth is.
But DANG! I'm going to miss the band, our home group, and the many friends we have here.
