no means yes

This is the "Yes Church" but sometimes a "no" is a "yes." I was invited to serve on a UUA-level committee last week, but chose to postpone such involvement, and focus on my local congregation. Once I have a year of "real" ministry experience, I do want to get involved at the district and/or national level. But this first year, I feel it important to focus on congregational work.

...and I had already agreed to serve on the UUMen Steering Committee. Which may sound like a contradiction, but it is only two more meetings per year, one of which is at GA, where I'd be anyway.

So, I am happy to have been asked, and I am happier that I am learning to keep a balance in my activities.
