I accepted a Board position for my church today.
…There are several words in that sentence that feel a little foreign coming out of my mouth. (Clue: “accepted”, “Board position”, and yes, “church”)
The cute thing to say here would be, “Oh, geez, this is such a ‘real adult’ thing to do! When did I become an adult?” Insert bashful giggle, etc.
Leaving aside the fact that I haven’t felt like a kid in a long damn time, I find that I’m mostly feeling a calm readiness to take this on.
Of course, I might be singing a different tune after a few board meetings and the sorts of miscellaneous conflicts that are rumored to happen in UU church committees/boards.
