Life calms down on Sunday

Sunday 26th February 2012
Family afternoon off
People sometimes joke about Sundays as "your busy day, Vicar" but actually it's the least busy day of the week.  It's just that it's the public face of a parish priest's work  --  and the important focus of the week when we offer our life at the altar to be transformed. 
     After a hectic Saturday with a funeral followed by a vist to a sickbed twenty-five miles away and then preparations for services, Sunday morning was simply two services.  Since nobody had made any afternoon appointments with me (and parishioners don't really want to be disturbed on Sunday afternoon) we had a day off from lunchtime onwards.
