Reverend Mother of RevGalBlogPals writes: Well, the Clergy Superbowl is almost upon us, and so, I offer up this Friday Five (with apologies for the irreverent title):
1. Will this Sunday be Palms only, Passion only, or hyphenated?
Um…. neither? This comes from being at a nonliturgical church.
2. Maundy Thursday Footwashing: Discuss.
Been there… done that… Not this year. Actually my more meaningful footwashing experiences have been in non-church settings.
3. Share a particularly meaningful Good Friday worship experience.
Nailing a list of sins (mine) to the cross… and watching as the slip of paper was removed, put in an urn and burned to ash (along with the paper confessions of everyone present…)
4. Easter Sunrise Services–choose one:
a) “Resurrection tradition par excellence!”
b) “Eh. As long as it’s sunrise with coffee, I can live with it.”
c) “[Yawn] Can’t Jesus stay in the tomb just five more minutes, Mom?!?” Absolutely option “c”!!! Jesus understands if I lie in bed and listen to the birds!
5. Complete this sentence: It just isn’t Easter without…
Bronchospasms from easter lilies. One of my all-time greatest allergens. But if I am thinking of things I “must have at Easter” then it probably would be making sure we have malted milk eggs and my home-made hot cross buns, too.
Back to re-typing what once was lost, but now is half-found… (See my previous post…)
P.S. I’ve discovered the secret to fast Blogger action – post just after midnight. 😉
