It's been a LONG week. Helping with VBS, then spending the weekend at our synod assembly.
And now I've got to write a sermon for tomorrow.
But all I can think about is the parish meeting we had Wednesday night, before we left for the assembly. It became clear that the honeymoon period is over. I'm a little stressed over this, because their critiques have me stuck between a rock and a hard place. I don't spend enough time with them between services, because I have to get to the other services. I'm late for services, because I spend as much time as I can talking to people at the previous church. So people aren't happy. And I'm frustrated that no one talked to me face to face about it long before now, but instead this is coming up at a parish meeting apparantly months after the complaints started.
Let it go, and focus.
