Shoveling off the Welcome Mat

Welcome to Rev. Andy Little of Andy Little's Ramblings and Writings: Ministry from Two Poles . . . or, Preaching from Both Ends.

Andy's really funny. Go check him out!

I am a second career minister currently serving Westminster United Presbyterian Church in Schenectady, NY. [I'll wait for the applause to die down.] My first career of 25 years was as an optician and a greedy, unscrupulous businessperson. Yes, well, thank you but I am feeling much better now. After the battle between my relentless need to accumulate and my conscience reached the point where there was nothing left to do but fall down and curl up into a ball, I walked away from the rat race and became poor and happy.

Also, welcome to newbie blogger Susan from GodPots: reflection, expression, justice: a place of hospitality and conversation.

Godpots is intended to be a place of hospitality, a place of open conversation, a place to consider new ideas and reflect on actions that may reveal a more whole and holy way to live with one another and with the world. The name reflects creation as vessels for the Creator’s spirit – our usefulness, our fragility, our center being filled by the divine being. It is a place to reveal the heart, the struggle, the hope we have.
Susan, we look forward to hearing more from you!

I hope that all our friends in the South and East are staying safe and warm and dry. I envy you your snow! (In my corner of the Midwest, we had only one snowfall this winter, and I enjoy snowstorms . . . as long as the pantry's stocked and the furnace is all fired up.) At any rate, if you're blanketed by a late season snow, hunker down, snuggle up, grab yourself a mug of hot chocolate (or other Lent-appropriate beverage) and spend a cozy Monday catching up with PC(USA) Bloggers!

I thank you for your introducing my blog to your readers. It's nice to be appreciated.

That said, while I have what some have described as a sardonic sense of humor, being funny isn't why I blog. Someone going to my blog looking for humor will likely be truly disappointed - except possibly for the "About..." pages.

Now, if you meant by "funny" that I am peculiar - never mind, I am guilty as charged. Just ask my church.

Again, thanks very much for the welcome and the write-up.

Blessings, Andy
