No, I’m not giving up Social Media for Lent. My 2013 Lenten discipline is to give thanks to God for those who have helped me to grow into who God intends for me to be and become. See all of my 2013 Lenten Thanks here.
What seems like a million years ago – in actuality 25 – I wanted to be a lawyer, more specifically a lobbyist. Because many of my family and community worked in politics, I grew up in the halls of the State Capitol Building in Sacramento, CA. Just after high school and into college I was an office assistant at the, now dissolved, law firm, Heron, Burchette, Ruckert and Rothwell.
For a myriad of reasons, being a cog in the chaos of this high-powered, global law firm – where even MY time was being billed out – I quickly discovered that I did not, in fact, want to be a lawyer or a lobbyist. I made great friends, had some fun times and and learned a good deal, the best part about working at HBRR helped is that it helped in the discernment of my vocation and call to ministry . . . and for that I am thankful.
Today I give thanks for my my time working at Heron, Burchette, Ruckert and Rothwell.
