how was your day off?

Monday’s are my day off. Normally it’s a discipline I practise well. It starts with a sleep in and a quiet coffee with my wife. Then lunch, often followed by a walk or a movie. Then I try to do something with the kids, either bike riding or making dinner together. Today things were pear-shaped.

7:30 am email with the news of the death of a parishioner
11 am speak at Kingdom Builders on Living the text in a postmodern context.
2 pm conduct the funeral of another parishioner.

All this after a weekend with two services, 7 people attending a membership information morning, another death and the heart attack of a friend, who is now recovering.

I’d appreciate your prayers for a season of uncommonly major pastoral moments.
