Administrative Assistant's prediction of a constant stream of visitors for today was not accurate, and I'm grateful. There have only been a couple. Treasurer and I chatted for a while. He has some interesting things going on in his family, and we have some interesting dilemmas with the church finances. We are dealing with some major building issues, and need to determine where we will find the money to address them. I think we have a plan. He also reported about a potential conflict I will need to address, and I have a plan for addressing it. It really is good to be back to work.
The committee responsible for worship and education is meeting tonight, and as I worked on the agenda, I realized that this could be a very long meeting. We continue to have more opportunities, and I hope we will embrace those opportunities. I read an article today that talks about how being the pastor of a growing church can be exhausting. It described our situation beautifully. I'm going to share it with the board, as we will have a discussion of their priorities for my work. I can't do it all, much as I'd like to. It will be interesting to see where they think I can cut back.
Daughter called me at 7:30 this morning, and I haven't heard from her since. She is becoming so much more independent. It's great to see her maturing and becoming more responsible.
