Our Evil Genius MomentPosted: March 13, 2013
Yesterday my husband was talking about the youth retreat he organized and ran this past weekend. He was bouncing ideas off of me about what suggestions he would make to the next vicar, what went well, and what he could have done better. Then he said, ” I should probably just put next year’s retreat on the calendar now so the next vicar won’t have to worry about it when he gets here.” Then he paused, smiled slyly, and continued, “I should plan to have it in February.”* We looked at each other for a moment, tipped our heads back, and laughed and laughed.
*Lent, the church season that is notoriously busy for pastors, usually begins in February.
