I’m not entirely clear how this happened, but….it’s September.
For our sisters in North America, that means Labour Day weekend, and fall kick-offs, and a return to the program year.
For our friends Down Under, it hopefully means a turn toward summer! And also Father’s Day, which can be a fraught time for some.
For those of us in the UK, it means bank holidays and strongly considering turning the heating on. 😉
For all of us, though, it means that Sunday’s coming. Whether you’re following a lectionary (RCL conversation is here!) or finishing a series or pondering world events (there are certainly plenty of them to go around), pull up a chair and grab a snack and join the writing party! Or, for some of us, the procrastination party! Feel free to share your half-baked ideas, your full sermons, your seeds in need of some nurturing…and also your best procrastination techniques. Because for those of us who have a holiday weekend ahead, it can be hard to find the motivation to work when everyone is off playing in the sun, so we can use some new angles on the procrastination fun!
I have a delightful Halloumi Curry to share, as I made it Friday night (using nearly every pan in the kitchen to do so) so it’ll be more delicious as the day goes on. And raspberry magnum bars, to make it feel like it’s still summer. And my procrastination technique of the day will be…..washing dishes! Lol!! I am on the last week of 14 weeks of people’s favourite hymns, and we have communion, so I need everything to be relatively short…which means more time to find creative ways to procrastinate, right?
What are you working on this week? And how are you avoiding it? 😉 All are welcome at the Preacher Party!
Teri Peterson is a minister in the Church of Scotland, in a place where today it was freezing inside but delightfully warm and sunny outside, for a change. She spends her free time reading, petting the kitties, and amassing an ever larger collection of rain gear. And, of course, taking pictures of the #ViewFromMyWindow because the manse (and the people, and the town) is the best ever.
