Two friends and I schlepped tables from Canterbury to Our Saviour this morning. We also unloaded the items I had been collecting in my car (Bible, prayer books, lessons from the early church that can be read at Morning Prayer on Sundays I am not there, more coffee hour supplies, another icon . We toured and discussed, looking at things that need to happen, thinking about the near approach of Advent. Making a note of maintenance that needs to be done. And just plain cleaning. Pondering the wish list. A press release about All Saints' Day worship went out.
A top priority is a new sign. Monday we will be exploring getting a huge sign (see post below) out front. We will work on flyers, radio PSAs, etc. - the initial steps to getting the word out.
I am marshaling resources for English classes for Spanish speakers and was looking at Spanish explanations of English grammar this afternoon.
Plans are afoot for tea with the regional dean in a week so she and I can meet each other (I promised to bring the madeleines).
I also took freshly picked tomatoes (cherry and small yellow pear-shaped ones) to new neighbors moving in down the block. Nice folks.
Began re-reading Sophocles' Oedipus Rex as I ponder the production of Oedipus we saw last night.
Took not one but two mini-naps. (+Maya, please take note: a presbyter trying to heed a bishop.)
Dinner with our monthly potluck group earlier this evening. Lovely food and delightful company.
Returning now to Thebes.
