Holy Week is almost upon us, I suspect that ordained or not, other revgal/pals calendars look a bit like mine, FULL, FULL, FULL.....
So faced with a busy week:
1. What restores you physically?
An afternoon nap.Usually my dog will join me.
2. What strengthens you emotionally/ mentally?
Going out for supper Friday night with friends. This grew into a ritual after having Greek till 4:45 in the fall semester. We were so drained and this helped to rejuvenate us. It is now a tradition.
3. What encourages you spiritually?
Gathering with the community for prayer, whether it’s chapel, lectio divina, or compline.
4. Share a favourite poem or piece of music from the coming week.
O Sacred Head Now Wounded.
5.There may be many services for you to attend/ lead over the next week, which one are you most looking forward to and why? If there aren't do you have a favourite day in Holy week if so which one is it?
I am most looking forward to the one that will begin my leadership role this week, Tuesday chapel. One of my good friends and I are paired up for it. Then from Thursday on I’ll be at my teaching parish assisting with the services. This will be the first Holy Week that I’ve been in a leadership role in each service.
