This has been a week full of meetings. Worship and education Monday night. Music planning yesterday. Property and communication today. When I'm not in a meeting, I'm writing. We need to have the Lenten devotional guide ready to distribute Sunday. Sometimes delegating works well, and sometimes it doesn't. I was only supposed to write one for each week this year, but that didn't work out very well. There were two weeks that I only had to write 2, but several of the weeks I ended up needing to write 5 of them.
Changes and challenges are also taking up time. We decided to have a meeting with the Sunday School teachers after worship Sunday. Sunday School has not been going as smoothly as we'd like this year. The teachers are ignoring our child protection policy, among other issues. We are going to sit down with them, lay out the issues, and ask them to figure out together how they want things handled.
Administrative Assistant blew up Monday because a couple of board members came in and made some major changes in the sanctuary. She opposed the changes, and doesn't think they went through proper channels to get the changes approved. Today she said she hadn't decided if she liked the changes or not. That's progress-- because at least she's considering the possibility that they might be positive.
We are supposed to get 6-12 inches of snow Thursday-Friday. I have an all day meeting 75 miles away on Saturday. I may decide I'm not going.
I made the mistake of looking at my calendar for next week today. It makes this week look easy. I have evening commitments Monday-Thursday. I have day time meeting 3 days.
Thankfully, Daughter is having a good week. Even better, even when ministry is crazy busy, I love what I'm doing and wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
