Hmmm. I signed on all ready to try and do a real round-up, but Blogger is having a moment. The list of all our sites and which are updated is not appearing in the sidebar at present. It was there earlier today, but I decided to leave the update till after dinner. Procrastination is always such a bad idea.
Well, Plan B. What's the most dramatic emergency Plan B story of your ministry? The one that leaps immediately to my mind is the year the Interim Senior Pastor I was working with delegated the whole of one Christmas Eve service to me. Do what you want! Go for it! What was not communicated to me clearly was that our regular organist was not available for this "extra" service and I needed to recruit an accompanist as well. So it's ten minutes till the service starts and I'm searching high and low for our organist. Where is she? Why is she so late? Finally someone says, "She's not playing for this service. She asked me the other day if I knew who you'd gotten to do it." AHHHHHHHH! Luckily there was someone else present who was a passable pianist. She wasn't expecting to play, hadn't rehearsed, but we pulled it off, barely.
Can you beat that?
