This week is a four day work week for Tim and I. I took Friday off and we will be traveling out to Iris' 3rd birthday celebration.
I've been packing and getting things set up for the trip, because I don't have a lot of time to get things accomplished. One of the things on my to-do list was to swap reader/prayer leader duties since I would be gone next Sunday.
I'm sitting there in church looking around me, and realize that there is no one to ask. There isn't a single reader in church. Not one. Dang it. That meant calling around, which added to that to-do list...
I turned my attention to the service, and the priest said, "Please be seated for the readings."
So I sat down along with everyone else.
John, down the pew from me, looked at me and cocked an eyebrow. I looked back at him. He made a motion with his hand.
Hell's bells! I suddenly got it. I was the reader! I got my Sundays mixed up!
And I headed up front grateful that I didn't have to call around trying to find someone to swap Sundays with me.
Good thing you got that problem solved.ReplyDelete
That would make me flustered for sure. But fortunately, I find the church to be a forgiving crowd.ReplyDelete
We haven't stone snyone on the parking lot in just forever. How about you guys?ReplyDelete
Well, that was a good mistake.ReplyDelete
I am not familiar with this. I gather that you had to pass some sort of selection process?ReplyDelete
You can certainly think on your feet. I would have panicked.ReplyDelete
Ha! Well THAT was convenient. I hope you weren't put too much on the spot by unexpectedly having to read!ReplyDelete
I'm trying to remember what the readings were this past week. Nothing with any names you'd have needed to practice ahead of time, I don't think....ReplyDelete
Awesome. I love it when a plan comes together. Enjoy your trip and have a great time at the birthday party.ReplyDelete
That was a hell of a blunder but none of us are perfect. For example, I once mis-spelt "antidisestablishmentarianism". I hope you have a lovely time with Little Iris.ReplyDelete
