How far?

My life situation has brought me to a place where I am working in a ministry position that is a great skill-fit for me. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am where God wants me to be.

That being said, I have yet to feel like I am home.

What I sacrificed to take this new position and move my life from Nashville to North East, MD was my community. I was spoiled with a ridiculous amounts of great friends who were in similar life-stages. I truly had a secure sense of community. I had people calling me and people I could call. Here in North East, I haven’t got to that place.

Trying to overstate the glaringly obvious:
Nashville is a city with 500,000 people and about double that within the county…
North East, MD has 2,733 people

I have talked with some friends and I need to accept that I am in a different place. It is going to require traveling a distance to get anywhere… Which takes me to the question of the day…. How far? How far would you travel for; church, dinner, shopping, friends?
