I'm a dentist in Minnesota. Business has been bad lately, for some reason.

I work as a pastor among the homeless and mentally ill.  And I write.  Not for anyone in particular, mind you, but I do post blogs.  A lot.  And I run and live in a community house.  And I organize meals, and stuff.  You get the idea.

But "job"?  Jobs are for people who get paid.

So about four years ago I became manager of a three acre property on which our homeless church and three other churches meet.  I just quit that job.  Now I'm working half time, seeing if I can actually make a little bit of money writing, instead of just doing it all for free.  I have my doubts.

Will you still be in charge of the gardens? Or, will you work there on occasion? You're very good at it. :)

I've learned to love the gardens, but really it's my co-pastor Jeff who's really good at them.
