now the feast...

yesterday i attended late service at zion. it was the first church i visited when i moved to town because it was right across the street from where i lived. it felt right, probably because it was so close to wednesday night communion at concordia. there's just something about the elca liturgy for me. and especially yesterday when we used part of marty haugen's "now the feast and celebration". they were welcoming new members and it made me wonder if i should consider it. i've never felt any real pull to become a full member; i just always sign the register as a guest receiving communion, but it has been 3 1/2 years. then i also think, how long am i actually going to be here in iowa? i do love iowa city and i'll have to get my iowa driver's license (finally!) in the next week since mine expires on my birthday next tuesday. but i hardly feel like an iowan. perhaps i'm just misplaced. i do wonder where i belong. not in a way that i don't belong here, but i feel like maybe there's somewhere else that's a better fit. and then i think, perhaps it's not where you are but who you're with. (apologies for the dangling preposition)

"Now the feast & celebration. All of creation sings for joy, to the God of life & love & freedom. Praise and glory forevermore." ---Marty Haugen
