While the cat's away...

Yeehaw, curricula.
My partner's out of town for a few days, so the kids and I are having wild parties and living on Pixy Stix.  Well, we could be. Only we're more or less up to our normal activities. Perhaps my habit of working on some projects on all the flat surfaces has spread everywhere, and I will admit to eating dinner at 5 PM tonight. But wild, not so much. 

An ambitious reading plan...
In our churches, many ministers and religious professionals are preparing (hence the projects and piles) to head out to meetings and study time and hopefully some hard-earned vacation, too. Some churches, I'm told, close down for the summer entirely.

In Houston we might slow down a tad, but church is ON, fifty-two weeks of the year. Thank goodness for dedicated volunteers and existing structures to make sure that our saving message continues even when individual leaders are away! The congregation can still sing and learn and celebrate with one another, seekers can be welcomed, and new initiatives can be considered and study begin.

Soon enough it will be August and we'll be plunging into a new church year, eager for what is to come.
