a time of transitionPosted: September 26, 2016
Yesterday was my first time at Good Shepherd since Kathleen’s departure. The Sunday before last was the church’s first Sunday without Pastor Kathleen, but Terry and I were in El Cajon for our nephew Race’s birthday celebration. It was definitely a liminal experience yesterday.
Our supply priest, Rev. Canon Victoria, filled in during the summer last year, and I really liked her. She very much met my expectations yesterday. I’m glad that she’ll be at Good Shepherd for all of October with the exception of next week.
Yesterday’s service was definitely different. Instead of the elaborate Prayers of the People with music, we used Rite II Form VI with some additions. We didn’t acknowledge birthdays, anniversaries, and thanksgivings or do the prayers for travel or other needs, though those were listed in the bulletin.
It’s going to be a long transition, so I had best learn to be flexible.
