I spent the morning in the office, mostly working on the usual Monday morning suspects: passing messages on to Susan, our secretary, making sure we’ll have certificates for our Scholarship recipients next week, and visiting with parishioners who stopped in the office. And, by the end of the morning, I had the worship bulletin for Saturday’s memorial service completed and approved by the family. Email sure makes doing that so much easier!
This afternoon, I worked on planning out the worship services for the rest of June, July and August. I now have scriptures chosen, titles for all the sermons, hymns to go with them (did that last week!), and services roughed out. And the services for the next two weeks are completed. All that took up about four hours.
This is the sort of work best done at home, where I have all my books and other resources.
