Being a pastor is too much fun. No two ways about it.
This morning I got to read and discuss an outstanding passage from Diognetus with a group of laymen that I dearly love and treasure - and all over bad coffee and greasy breakfast to boot!
Came home and exercised, showered, prayed Matins, read from the Book of Concord, posted to ye old blog, printed out final copy of Sunday's bulletin, and it's 9:40!
Ahead today: More in Gerhard's Loci, the Sacrament to shutins in two nursing homes, Vespers followed immediately by the Eucharist for the day of Sts. Peter and Paul, a friend and family over for dinner, and then a school board meeting, followed by Compline to round out the day.
For the daily offices, I've been using the LSB (from the proposed version approved at Convention). I can't begin to say how impressed I am with the clean and only slightly updated ordos for Matins and Vespers and Compline. But these old eyes will definitely be glad when the Hymnal itself is available - the TINY print of the proposed version is proving a bit of a challenge.
