…one does not retire from a calling. What I do is a holy vocation, a sacred calling. One can run out of time or have no place to work or just die. You cannot, however, retire from a calling. I have never thought of retirement, not recently, or now or ever. I will not retire.
Ministry can take various forms but you do not retire from a divine call to a holy work. What would that look like, anyway?
So, the work goes on, wherever, whenever, however, with whomever I am able.
