Tardy K to Z Weekend Roundup

I've had a very busy and happy weekend thanks to a plethora of interesting activities that were on my calendar. If you're like me, you wonder why everything has to happen the same weekend! Thanks for your patience, and now (drumroll please) the tardy weekend K to Z roundup.

Songbird had a lot of interesting responses to her Friday Five about the Arts. I didn't get to play, but check the comments to see who did.

Please continue your prayers for Lutheran Chik. Her mother's funeral was yesterday and as those of us who have lost a parent know--its the months that follow the loss that are really hard to bear without the support of loving friends.

Rev Dr. Mom
remembers her father on the fourth anniversary of his death with a lovely tribute.

RevGals can be forgiven if they want to re-name Holy Week, "Holy Moley Week"! The stress of the season is getting to Will Smama and Reverend Mommy who is having restless dreams of Whack-a-Mole. The past couple of weeks have been particularly stressful for Preacher Mom and Susan Rose. Caroline ruined a pair of jeans trying to create a piece of art reflecting Jesus' prayers in the garden. Rebel claims the Bad Mom award. Shield the Joyous tries to spread the stress around by sharing 5 of the 10 questions on her take home exam. No thank you, but (((hugs))) to all of you!

And add Steph to the Stress for Success list as she wails, "why does everything have legs? Where have all the skirts gone?"

Now you need some relief from those stressful posts? Check out Pink Shoes' list of books recommended by her blog readers. Join a softball team like Beth. Visit St. Cassarole's fanciful imaginary store for clergywomen. Or listen to Amy who reminds us that sometimes the best answer is "no, I can't do that."

Vocation-related posts this weekend include Jeff's post on Forgiveness and Calling, Terri C's musings on her internship, Mark's story of lost and found, Zinnhead's fretting over semantics, and Rachel's answering "God's poke" to offer childbirth classes for young women who have decided not to have an abortion.
offers a poem he wrote in 1980, The Moral Christian, which remains timely. Jean reflects on her love of stargazing. Joe and I provide links to information on the Gospel of Judas.

Welcome to the neighborhood, Becky of On the Journey and Revabi of Vicar of Watley!

Please comment if I missed something at your place. Blessings to all of you and yours this Holy Week.


  1. Glad to know my poem still holds up. Thanks!

  2. well you missed me ... I confessed to having read a book (Presumed Guilty) that I should have saved for the Easter weekend. It was GOOD!

    Today I'm helping edit /format the Ordinary Time devotional. There are some really really good entries - this book will be such a blessing.

  3. I'm having a hard time accessing the On the Journey blog, for some reason.
