No Rector...

One of the joys of being a Curate Assistant (among others) is the ability to say, "You'll have to talk to the Rector about that." The buck ultimately doesn't stop with me, and Tim is the one who is in charge within the parish. Overall strategy, visits, preaching schedules, emergencies, you name it, I'll pass it up the chain.

However, there are a few weeks in the year when things aren't so simple. Rector goes off on holiday and suddenly you're the one holding the fort. Normal work (visits, sermon prep, anything else needing done) is added to with the special visits needing done (homes, hospitals, nursing homes), emergency calls (the dying, funerals) and sorting the notice sheets for Sunday.

We're currently in one of those weeks, and things are hotting up. Thankfully I'm all set for this evening's Fellowship Group Bible study, but there's still Sunday's sermon to work on and a few more visits to squeeze in, as well as 'Potty Training' tomorrow night.

God is good, all the time. Now what's next on the list?
