I have a friend.
He is a pastor at a local Lutheran church. I am not a member of his church, but it is the same denomination as the one I attend.
We usually see each other once a week, sometimes just the 2 of us, sometimes in a group setting.
Last Saturday he helped my dad build my back fence. He spent roughly 8 hours with my dad working on my fence.
I like him, and we'd make a pretty good match, I think. But I can't tell if he is just clueless (always a possibility) or really isn't interested in something more than we have now.
I have been reluctant to make any moves myself. I've been burned several times in the last 3 years and I'm not very willing to put myself in the position to get burned again anytime soon.
Dear God, show me the path and I'll walk it. Point me in the right direction and I'll go there. Amen.
