I thought I was moving up in the world. Having made a splash in my first major parish, maybe I could raise my profile by going to a new diocese. That's what my ego was saying. But just about every other part of me was saying I needed to rest, and to reconnect with my wife and family. Fortunately, Church of the Redeemer, Stoney Creek, in the Diocese of Niagara, allowed me to do both. The parish didn't want my big ideas, just my attentiveness, while the diocese welcomed my newcomer enthusiasm. It proved one of the few times I could rest and work at the same time. Until the bishop suggested I move. Again.
