    Great post, Joel! I resonate with a lot of this. I thought life would be different too. I thought I’d be a pastor by now but, despite still being a Christian, I do not want to be one.(albeit not a Conservative one anymore, much to the chagrin of my childhood friends) I am happier now than I’ve been in years. I was miserable for a few due to failed relationships, struggling with being single and breaking out of the uber-conservative-rapture-ready preacher to a chill, pissed at the Pharisees Christian. Yeah I’m working in retail (grocery) but my brother is my boss, I make decent money and getting to see my niece/nephew regularly is always great. The employees there are like family, they are neighbours, they are a part of the community. How they come around us is inspiring.

    I’m sorry to rant here but thank you.
