Over at RevGals, it’s Friday Five time again and this week it is about the weekend! What is going on, how to describe it.
Wondering: It’s the Victoria Day long weekend in Canada and I am wondering why I didn’t take this Sunday as one of the extra Sundays off that I negotiated.
Gardening: It’s the unofficial kickoff to gardening season; the garden centres etc. will be crowded, especially if the weather holds. We are getting soil and mulch and I plan to work in my flower beds.
Bonfire: This is often when we host the first bonfire of the season.
Puttering: I like putting things in order and I may have time this weekend to do so, there is something spiritual about creating order out of chaos rather than rushing through a ‘to do’ list.
Rest: Last Sunday, I conducted two services, hosted a ‘Listening Circle’ as part of my Interim Ministry work, followed by visiting and worshiping with a congregation in the presbytery as part of my Pastoral Oversight work, followed by a full day on Monday. This Sunday, it is just two services, followed by nothing. And Monday is a statutory holiday.
