One Week

Administrative Assistant was on a mission trip last week.  Next week she leaves for 2 weeks of vacation.  When she returns, I will be on vacation for 4 weeks.  So this is the only week we have together in the office in 8 weeks.  That means this is a very busy week.  Very busy.  One of the priorities for this week is getting some planning done for fall.  I like to kick off the fall with a themed sermon series.  This fall we will be using the story of the Exodus to reflect on our personal faith stories and the story of the congregation.  We are working on banners, new hymn verses, time lines, stickers, a drama.  So far it is coming together well.  We have volunteers working on designing the banners and writing the hymns. 

Today was our first day back together, and to say we were scattered would be an understatement.  We had to catch up on what went on last week, of course.  Treasurer needed some of her time.  I was playing with various ideas, and seeking opinions.  We had research projects we hadn't been able to complete without her help.... 

I'm pleased, though, with what we accomplished.  Our third Friday night children's program is this week, so the program director was hanging around the office for a while working on things.  The program is growing, and we're excited to see where it will take us in the fall.  We've had new adult volunteers each time, and more children have joined us each time.  I'm going to be the story teller and music leader this time.  We are taking July and August off, and will restart in September. 

Daughter was texting me about sexual harassment at her program today.  I kept referring her back to staff.  She wasn't too happy with me.  I wasn't overly concerned about it.  She tries for drama, but isn't having much luck with it....
