Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Sunday, January 14, 2007


That's the theme of the weekend. Yesterday was the first meeting of the year for our regional board, combined with individual vestry meetings for all four congregations. This was a new structure for the churches, but it worked well, I think-- we dealt with all the business before us, and still finished within the time frame I was aiming for. No dithering, minimal side conversations, and everyone got along well. It was lovely.

This morning was the first of four Annual Meetings: the time when vestry members and delegates to convention are elected, the annual budget is presented, and the congregation has some conversation about the "state of the parish," temporally and spiritually. This time there were some harder questions asked, at one point; but that is also as it should be, and the exchanges were both healthy and respectful, and those concerned, still carrying some resentments over an historical issue or two, felt they had their concerns addressed.

And now, another meeting-- the first of the football post-season. Bears and Seahawks, here-- and we got home in time to see some of the fourth quarter. They're going into overtime at the moment.

Sorry, Ref+; you know I love you. . . but
