Hooray for Friday!
What a week. All this juggling is taking some getting used to!
So, highlights include:
Sunday morning service with the lovely David, who has covered lots of services for me over the past six months.
A trip to Crosby for Cine-babies this morning.
I got to cook one of my favourite meals, halloumi saag.
Challenge: Big old church, massive heating bill, few funds.
Drain: My diary is already filling up and I’m struggling to say ‘no, sorry, I can’t do that’. Although I did manage to say it once, so that’s better than nothing!
God moment: Starting to worry about those church bills but then hearing one of my favourite songs ‘Vagabonds’ coming from the bathroom! Just to remind me who is in charge.
Ta-dah moment: I did two funeral visits in one day and by the end of the evening I had done the running orders, emailed about the order of service and written a eulogy! I felt very productive.
Foodbank: This week we fed 22 people. Sophia and I sat on the floor in the hall getting to know a couple of little boys as they ran around us in circles. They boys kept going up to the door of church and so I opened it and turned the lights on. We had a lovely time looking round church with their Mum! They said it was the nicest welcome they had ever had at a Foodbank.
Mum moment: Presiding on Sunday morning with Sophia in my arms and jangling a rattle as I did so.
Mum fail: I got poo on my finger when we were at church for Foodbank on Wednesday.
