Over the past four days I have attended five church services at two congregations for a total 6.5 hours and Lord knows how many hymns. Not to mention a church volunteer trip on Saturday to Cook County Jail ("the real work of the church", as Laura Jean said). I'm pretty sure that that is more church than I logged during the entire Clinton administration. Turns out Holy Weekend is a working weekend for preacher's spouses too. Still, it was pretty fun. Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, we got to see friends confirmed into their church Saturday night (which almost burned down, but then didn't), attended a very nice sunrise service on Sunday, and capped it off with a completely fabulous sermon from Susan at the full Easter service. And then we all got up on stage and sang the "Hallelujah" chorus together to close it out. Amen indeed!
And now I can drink beer again! Yay!
