Because all the cool kids are doing it...
January: Duct tape: As soon as I find it, here are a couple of candidates for its application.
February: Well... this is interesting...
March: Since I'm supposed to be an examining chaplain for our diocese, I'd sure be embarrassed if I'd blown this one.
April: Things we never covered in seminary: Completing parochial reports for the national church, which ask for membership figures not noted in any record book, anywhere ("Oh! Is that what those blank pages were for?"); covering more than $1000 in monthly parish expenses with a checking account balance of $92.00; calling on a shut-in while simultaneously fending off the advances of an overserved family member; and calming fears which arise over a parishioner finding a lump in a breast-- by suddenly remembering the presence of a pacemaker.
May: In honor of the joys of springtime... a little youthful versification to warm the cockles of your heart (clicking on the photo will make it larger and easier to read).
June: Today is Seabury's graduation day!
July: One of the right things about the experiment that is American Democracy is that I can post to this blog without fear of retribution.
August: In one sense, I suppose our recent vacation (Parts one, two, three and four) could be termed a sort of pilgrimage-- intentional "getting to know you" time, in this part of the country that was wholly new to us until last year.
September: That was the theme this morning.
October: The officer on the right is a seminary classmate and dear friend.
November: The Lead has a word of correction to offer, today.
December: Please pay particular attention to the young man on the far right.
