"Wow, my second official day in my first official office of my post-seminary career. Let's see, what should I do first? I have worship to plan and a bulletin to produce. I have so many people to meet and greet... should I get business cards? Can I have them say 'Rev.' on them even though I don't get ordained for a couple more weeks. Will that jinx it?"
"What should I preach on? I guess I could start with some fluff - Jesus loves us, mission is good, that kind of stuff. Nothing too apocalyptic."
"I guess what I really should do is get my ordination stuff in order. I am up here in Pennsylvania and the ordination is in Florida. Oh well, it's not like travel plans will get too interrupted."
"Speaking of travel plans I wonder how my sister is doing. She has a travelling job now - so lucky. I think this week she is in DC. How cool is that? Of course I like my place too, here in central PA. Not much in common though."
"Alright, time to slow the mind down, take some deep breathes and try to figure out what business as usual is."
"Oooh! A phone call for me - first one. Cool. Who is it? My husband. Why would he be calling me?"
