The past days have been emotionally occupied with the finalizing of my resignation as Worship Arts Director of the Chestertown Church of the Nazarene. What a roller coaster (since the departure of Jonathan Mills last October)! A portion of my letter (nothing confidential here) will suffice:
" As I have worn many emotions and
feelings/opinions "on my sleeve", you all know how difficult this decision has
been for me. Honestly though, for the past couple of months I have been under
a personal conviction that God has other plans for me now. Stepping out in
faith can be difficult when there are many things about the status quo that
you don't want to give up or lose. Working here, in God's church in
Chestertown has been an amazing privilege, and a big part of me doesn't want
it to end. It, however, is no longer possible to juggle responsibilities here
against my career. I do not feel a release (necessarily) from the calling
outlined in my job description, I do , however, believe that I have fulfilled
God's purposes for me here, now."
Having a sense of calling, and of a higher power and purpose is indeed a blessing.

Thank you Jessica. I suspect, however that you haven't seen the last of me.
