Today's list

"So, what's on your agenda today?" Glad you asked!
  • Finish Bible Study prep for this afternoon's session
  • Lead aforementioned Bible Study
  • Order Advent devotional materials
  • Various and sundry phone calls - 5 or 6, at a minimum
  • Finalize regional calendar for the next two months
  • One pastoral visit
  • Write articles for new regional newsletter
  • Write stewardship letter, to mail next week.
  • Brainstorm for a newly needed youth ministry in the region (monthly activities, I'm thinking-- but what?)
  • Weights class this evening
  • Grocery shopping
And here you were worried that I'd be bored...

Edit: not done; but that's not unusual. Good to know I've got a starter list for tomorrow.

You are welcome to my stewardship letter. (I run (for my sins) the stewardship campaign for my (Catholic) church). We are doing pretty well. I have a nifty color picture of the loaves and fish scene on top of the letter.

Dear Parish Family:

The Gospel of Jesus Christ, as depicted above in the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes, tells us that all miracles begin with acts of trust, and unselfishness. There were probably many, in the multitude that had followed Jesus, who had remembered to “pack a lunch”. There was only one who was willing to give his away, and to risk a day‘s hunger.

There is a difference between a follower and a disciple. Five thousand people were followers of Jesus on that day. Being a disciple means that one lives a certain way – walking with the Lord, doing justice, loving kindness, and trusting more in “treasures in heaven” than bank accounts on earth. Scripture reminds us that God is faithful, and knows our needs. God has never failed to meet our needs, even unto death. This stewardship season, let us be faithful disciples of our faithful God, not just in our words, and in our attendance, but also in what we are willing to risk for Jesus.

Not done? Heck, I think you're doing pretty darn well.

I usually have 8-10 things on my list, and I manage to get maybe 2-3 done. Granted, blogging doesn't help. :(
