Pastor Kathy goes on vacation...

And five people die.

So many funerals this week! By the end of the week, I will have assisted with two funerals and I will have done one on my own.

My day today started out slow - fighting writer's block on tomorrow night's sermon, spending a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon with one of the women's groups (and they fed me ice cream cake!), and then, all of the sudden, right before an afternoon meeting, I found myself in the midst of planning a funeral for Thursday...a funeral that I'm doing all by myself...so then my scheduled meeting went long (but it was good!), and I sat in on a baptismal preparation meeting for a couple whose twins will be baptized on Sunday, and then at 7pm, 10 hours after I arrived at church, I went home.

All of the sudden I'm busy!

  1. Don't know if you know her, but Tracey Cowan did an internship in Maryland this last semester (she graduated early) and she had the exact thing happen as you! I think the congregants do it on purpose!
