...to do a lot of paperwork. I've gotten the Morning Prayer service done for our Fresh Start session next week - it is such a pleasure planning worship. Still have to finish the sermon and the adult ad program, so that will be the afternoon's work. This is my mid-day break.
I am (mostly) over the disappointment of not getting the call to the church up north of here. There is no point in trying to overanalyze it, since I don't know the person who did receive the call. Got a nice note from the Bishop from up there commenting on my "prodigious gifts." Ah, well, it would have been lovely, but there is something else that God intends for me to do, not the least of which is to continue to serve at Saint Middle School, which is several months away from calling a permanent vicar.
There is a very large pile of books that are calling my name, but I WILL NOT get lost in them until the sermon and the adult ed program are completed. That way I can have a bit of a break tomorrow...I hope.
Thank goodness I've got icon-writing this weekend to look forward to! Saint Nicholas begins.
