I will eventually figure it out.
In the two weeks leading up to Easter, a pastor’s schedule gets really, really packed at a time when service preparation ramps up. Also escalating is some internalized pressure that builds to a boil as Holy Week commences, a pressure that sings a lovely tune warning that no matter how much you put on a schedule, you’ll never get it all done perfectly.
And in the climax of Easter, the two weeks of stress traditionally come to an end.
But not this year. In fact, I think today, Thursday, is the first day since the middle of March when I can truly pull back on he throttle. I will be working in both the church and home offices today with no set work times in either, yet.
Time for Morning Prayer.
