Time

I don’t know why I have such a hard time keeping up with my blog. It’s not like I don’t have anything worthwhile to express. I certainly do. My discipline is lacking in this category. So there.
So let me start off by saying that I have now entered into Festival mode. All the planning we have been doing is now coming to the forefront and I am getting excited about it. I think we have some awesome bands lined up. I will be especially curious to see how the Mariachi band will fare on Sunday night.
My summer staff is home from college and they are busy getting the church look great for the summer. We will breaking in a new guy this summer. Actually he’s not new because he is one of parish kids but he will be getting his taste of work.
The month of May was just as hectic as I knew it would be. There is so much going on and without another priest here to assist, I become overwhelmed at all the work. This is where I’m so grateful to have three deacons. I have been pushing off a lot of work on them. I am simply letting them be the deacons they were ordained to be! To serve!
There are some things I am not able to let them have more freedom with and to be quite blunt….it is preaching. The reason why is that it is the only time I can reach out and express the Gospel and connect with my people. Yes, I am a little greedy and self-centered in that regards.
So, having said that , I will try to post again and soon. God Bless you all!
