Why is it...

...that winning the election for Pastoral Delegate for the circuit produces the sensation of having drawn the short straw? Houston, here we come. In July. Wonderful. Just wonderful. Restructuring. I feel the headache coming on already... Kyrie eleison!

Sending you my deep and abiding sympathies ...

Rev. Shane R. Cota, SSP said...

I got elected today too. I guess I'll be seeing you there!

Elephantschild said...

Watch for my DH. He'll be the tall lay delegate one with the Art Garfunkel hair. :)

We absolutely must get together in Houston and deconstruct the reconstruction constructively :-) Bring a cushion and some Tylenol.

This will be the fourth time I've celebrate the joy.... Pittsburg, '92, St. Louis, '95; St. Louis 04 and now Houston.

Seriously, it will be G-R-E-A-T to see you there~

Just wait... POUNDS of junk mail will soon start flowing from all portals in the Synod! And don't forget those ABLAZE Moments.... Sigh...

Rev. Luke T. Zimmerman said...

Congratulations? See you down at Houston HumidityFest 2010.

(It's a repeat trip for me, but 2007 was from Iowa West; 2010 will be from English District.)

Just say, "No."

Pastor Olson said...

I'd say you were selected by the Holy Spirit.

Pr. H. R. said...

Dude, like I said: you're a boomer empty-nester. Take Mrs. Weedon and live it up on the Synod dime.

There's a Benihana's just down the block from the hotel.

(Oh, and Frau Pastor Curtis says thanks for taking the bullet this time.)

Pr. Lehmann said...

I might see you there. Find out tomorrow.

Rev. James Leistico said...

you can commiserate with Ralph. He got elected from amongst us. and he says he actually understands by-laws.

Elephantschild said...

"he says he actually understands by-laws."

I always thought that that particular gift required a special anointing by the Holy Spirit!

Paul said...

I'll be there as well, representing all of northeast Tennessee from Wartburt to Bristol. And cleaning house in both church and state as my guiding principle:) Can't wait for the reunion -- only foreseeable bright spot barring the failure of the SP's agenda.

I don't think that anointing comes from the Holy Spirit. ;-)

Pr. Lehmann said...

Well, see you in July (that's the only thing about being elected that I like).
