The church year more or less follows an academic calendar--we start up big time around Labor Day.
Oh, you mean that holiday just around the corner? Yikes!
Yep. Right now life is all about refining the calendar, lining up curriculum, meeting with volunteers, accumulating supplies, and OH GOODNESS, don't forget to rent the snow cone machine!
A colleague set up a countdown clock to his program's first day... and then we all yelped and decided the clock was a little too much. Ceaseless flow of endless time and all that.
Still, we all have that countdown going somewhere in our heads.
Bring chocolate, or at least ice water.
