Trading paces


No McLaren review today. It was fun to have the luxury of time to do a lot of reading. Another time..

Yesterday was spent doing usual ministry tasks: proofing the Sunday bulletin, visiting a member in a nursing home, and attending a fundraiser for a local agency that meets needs of the developmentally disabled. It was a great day, but not one for reading. A Generous Orthodoxy will come up later.

For today, I have an appointment with a family whose baby will be baptized tomorrow, meeting with a committee getting a jump on next year's time and talents focus, a meeting with a member who is re-tooling our environmental covenant display, WorshipAlive! (a wonderful quarterly program we help host bringing great worship leaders to our area. Today: Richard Bruxvoort-Colligan, who'll be helping us experiment with psalms in worship.) and.......a hootenanny sponsored by one of the fellowship groups in the church. It's exciting.....

Hope you're having a great weekend, too!

I love Alice in Wonderland, and that is a great illustration. It sounds like you have a busy day planned. I have lots of chores too. Most of them will be "running in place" activities, but I think some will create actual progress.

Have a great day.

I love the idea of bringing in various worship leaders on a quarterly basis. I'm putting this in my worship file. Thanks.

Wonderful illustration. Keep on going--one step at a time. Thanks for taking the time to write.

Sounds busy! So glad you're loving it. It's wonderful when we live with "who we are" intersecting "what we do."
