Monday Morning Musings

Ok, it actually isn’t morning anymore. Another day off “working,” writing reports from my weekend work. I spent the weekend as a group facilitator for a team of “listeners” who were discerning a group of “aspirants” and their call to ordained ministry. It’s a very cool job, being the facilitator, I love group work and do it well. So, now I’ve been busy writing up the group report, a summary of what the individual listeners heard and experienced combined with the group experience.

Now, I’ve exercised, eaten, and am about to move onto answering essay questions for a search committee. Only three questions for which they want thoughtful but concise answers, no page limit. I’ve done this eight times in the last two years, as I discern a new call (and vice versa), so I have quite a file of answers. Still these three questions will require me to start from scratch….they don’t quite fit any of the previously asked and answered questions, (of which I must have probably 50 questions and answers)….

It is a beautiful snowy day, a blizzard expected tomorrow. I need to get my dogs out, if possible. And I really need the search process to come to a fruitful conclusion so I can have a real day off.

About Terri C Pilarski

I am an Episcopal priest serving a delightfully progressive, interesting, creative congregation. I have been married more than half my life to the same man. We have two grown children, plus two dogs and two cats, although the number of four legged household members changes from time to time. I love to garden, knit, read, and play on Facebook or with my blog. I have been a practitioner of daily meditation since I was nineteen. I practice yoga five days a week and walk every where I am able too.
