Jobs that I have held

Someone asked the other day what jobs I have had prior to becoming a pastor.  I wondered later if they were thinking that I might need to prepare myself for another line of work.

As if anyone cared, here is the list of jobs I have held.

High School
Bicycle shop
Gallenkamp Shoes

Furniture mover in the summer
Gas Station Attendant

Post College
I laid asphalt
youth director at a tiny church

youth director at a Methodist church
deck builder
kwik copy printing
ups delivery

post seminary
bank teller
et cetera

because inquiring minds wanted to know.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.

And in your time as a dad, a husband, a friend, and a pastor, you've gotten to use all these skills you honed, except for maybe etcetera. Your family and your church undoubtedly benefited from your being good at:

Fixing bicycles
Washing Dishes
Moving Furniture
Grilling Burgers
Gassing up the cars
Guiding Youth, even when they don't listen
Being the bank - when teenagers need a loan from dad'
Repairing and rebuilding your deck
Asphalting the church parking lot

All those skills you learned were not a waste.
