I think my blog would be far more exciting if I spent more time drinking and less time at church. But given that it is Holy Week, I suppose the balance is in the right direction. Last Sunday, I gave a presentation in a "going green" Sunday school class in the morning, then went to my regular service, and led a two-hour Seder in the evening. Monday I had a church activity that was canceled (so I got to go out for an uneventful St. Patrick's Day), Tuesday I had dinner with a church group I am part of, Wednesday I rehearsed for the short play I am in tonight for our Easter Vigil, Thursday I had a meting related to the council I am on at church and then attended the Maundy Thursday service after canceling our small group so that people could go to church, Friday I would have gone to the Good Friday service, but couldn't get out of work, today I rehearsed again, tonight I will attend the Easter vigil (and perform the play), tomorrow I will go to the sunrise service, and then immediately leave for Cleveland to attend church with OLS and her family, as they have adopted me for all Christian holidays.
It isn't unusual for me to spend a fair amount of time on church activities, but this week was just ridiculous. But, like I said, it is Holy Week, so maybe God decided I needed to be a little more holy. Next week, I have church activities Tuesday and Thursday evening, but other than that I have nothing scheduled outside of work all week! So maybe I can catch up on the unholy side of my life, or at least go out and watch some basketball.
