Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

Not the Nine o'clock news- Songs Of Praise

The sermon many preachers have preached.

In the shower.

Or, in the car.

Rowan Atkinson plays "the shadow side of vicars" better than anyone! Being our vicar's "fixit person" has taught me a lot about that shadow side...I have gained a lot of insight while fixing sink traps, basement windows, and whatnot.

I think the only ones Rowan left out would be the rant about "the person who is a friggin' full professor and puts a damn $5 check in the plate every week,"...or maybe "Oh, yeah, I'm supposed to say something brilliant in the sermon every week, have spent hours on the sermon, and someone says they 'don't get it' when they haven't even bothered to crack a Bible and read the upcoming texts for the week THAT ARE PRINTED IN THE FRIGGIN' BULLETIN THE WEEK BEFORE..."

Elizabeth, do you know how hard it is not to hit your head on the inside of the sink cabinet from laughing when these intimate moments happen with one's clergy?

Nobody told me that one of the duties of Junior Warden was to also be the bearer of the priest's true confessions moments!

Well, we all have days like that! But the poor vicar does have his knickers in a bunch!
