RevKarla over at RevGalBlogPals offers this Friday Five:
Wow, this second Friday really snuck up on me! But it is here, in all of its glory, right? So…here we go, another random Friday Five!
1. What’s up? How are you? At the moment I’m cold, but a hot cup of coffee helps (or two or three)! We are deep into fall here in the Midwest and I’m adapting to less outdoor time, less walking. I’m busy, as any clergy-person is this time of year, but not yet overwhelmed.
If you were a Panda Bear that could speak O.k., even that is too random for me. You are moving to a new office. You can only take five books with you (pretend there is no thing such as kindle, nook, etc.). What would they be BESIDES teh Bible, which is already written on your hearts, yes? Office books? I’d take “Engaging the Word” by Michael Johnston, “Opening the Bible” by Roger Ferlo, A “Commentary on the American Prayer Book” by Marion Hatchett, “Praying Shapes Believing” by Lee Mitchell, and “Help, Thanks, Wow” by Anne Lamott. And, I’d really need a sixth one, a tiny volume called, “A Priest’s Handbook” By Dennis Michno.
3. If you had a superpower that could give you a five hour retreat, and you could go anywhere in the world to spend those five hours on retreat (because you have superpowers, ya’ know?), where would you go? I would always choose to go to the mountains and near a body of water – river or lake. So that could be places in Utah or Montana. I am particularly drawn to the Rocky Mountains. But I’d need a cabin with a fireplace and some good hot coffee or tea, a good book, some mandalas to color, and some knitting.
4. What piece of music, song, hymn, etc. are you diggin’ right now? Music? sigh. I hardly ever listen to my music these days. Miss it. Need too. But end up with earworms of church music. Today, hymns for the funeral tomorrow – The strife is over, and How great thou art….
5. Use the following words in a sentence (or two): Tangle, dribble, hook, Panda, shark, smile, worry, island. Oh to wander as a sharky Panda with a smile on my face through this tangle, dribble, island-world, without a worry to hook me.
