So here I am, on my day off…supposed to be writing a sermon for Sunday. While I have two pages written (I write a full manuscript) I find myself watching the ELCA Churcwide Assembly online and watching the Twitter feed on the Assembly. I’m anticipating a call today regarding a job I applied to.I have to ask, why do I have to preach the week of Churchwide Assembly? That’s a bit of a rhetorical, I’m preaching because the pastor at the church I attend (also my former fieldwork supervisor) is a delegate at the Assembly. I am filling in for him this Sunday since he will not be back in time to lead worship.
This is how much of a dork I am: I stayed up last night and watched the assembly as they voted on the rules of the Assembly. And I’ve been watching it on and off today. I’m not worried about getting the sermon written on time. It will be done, that’s not the issue. It’s just there are more distractions this week. I should have written it last week when there were less distractions. It’s not like I didn’t know last week that this was happening.
