Yesterday was Pentecost, the day when the church celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit. We revealed our new vision statement, and 4 members got up to talk about some aspect of it. 3 of them gave testimonies, which is not something that generally happens in our denomination. They all got applause. They all deserved it, because they did an amazing job. The Holy Spirit was at work among us yesterday, and it was wonderful. There have been a number of good comments posted on facebook about the worship service, which is nice. Even Daughter told me how much she liked the service.
I realized today how stressful the build up had been. We also unveiled our revamped logo, and the company that was making a clean copy of the logo we designed needed 3 attempts to get it right. This morning I felt much lighter. Of course, the fact that there are only 2 more sermons until vacation undoubtedly helped, too.
Tomorrow I have an all day meeting, so this will be a short week. Fortunately, I already have some ideas for this coming Sunday. Now that I'm less stressed, hopefully I'll work more efficiently.
