Manager’s Memo 3-13-20
I’m the head janitor here at the Journey. I’ve been a head janitor for much of my professional life at one organization or another. Being head janitor means you get to think about tomorrow and the next day and the next month and the next year, instead of just being focused on the details of what happens today. I wrestle with that thinking about tomorrow escalating to worrying about tomorrow, and the next day and the next week and the next month and next year. You get the idea.
It occurred to me recently though, this thinking about the future has at its root hope. I have an underlying hope that I have a future, that this radio ministry has a future, that you have a future. And I’m certain that hope for the future comes from an indwelling Holy Spirit and my unwavering belief I serve a God who cares and has promised, in the midst of trouble, that I have a hope for tomorrow. But, now some transparency. I’m worried.
Our Sharathon is scheduled for the end of March, just days away. But everything is closing down around us. Do we carry on like nothing is happening? Do dozens of volunteers come together for a few days? Do my friends come in from all over to help? Do I postpone? Do I cancel? I don’t know what is right. But we need to decide very soon.
I would love to hear your thoughts. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
For 88.3 The Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee, trying not to worry and trying to live like I believe Philippians chapter four is true.
