Wordless Wednesday: Why I have been distracted since last Friday

    • I have been, which is a good thing. The “bad thing” is the place I am going to will be just me, all by myself so I am back to square one. It will be fine though.

  1. Congratulations! Awesome news. Why do they spend one paragraph on the “attaboy” statement and the rest telling you what you can and can’t do?

    I hope this is not the end of something good, but the beginning of something great for you and your parish.

    • Lol, the attaboy is normal for these things. As is the rest. I mean most of the letter is a standard form letter with some improvements and words of thanks because of certain things that I have done. I just know that there is stuff I need to do and be prepared to do as well.

  2. I assume congratulations are in order, but I’m not really sure what this means since I’m not a church-goer myself (and especially since you blanked out the location). I’ve never actually met you before, but I’ll miss having you as a neighbor.

    (I do find it a bit out-of-sorts that you were directed not to substitute Communion services for daily Mass. Isn’t that something that you would have known and followed all along? Please excuse my ignorance… this isn’t my own religion but I do hope to learn.)

    • Scott,
      Thank you congratulations are in order. In answer to your question I am moving north into Sussex. I did blank out the actual location to at least make it somewhat harder for stalkers to track me down.

      Asking questions is the only way to learn. Not asking them, is just plain crazy. The letter is stated this way, because even though it is known. Without it being actually stated, someone could than say, well I was never told I couldn’t. Preempting stupidity I guess.

  3. Congratulations Brian. Im certain your current congregation will miss you terribly. As far as telling you what you can and cannot do – I do notice a lack of any mention of Reese’s. Thus – one could assume you could substitute peanut butter and chocolate during the Eucharist? I mean I totally would attend church if it included a Reese’s mini with a wine chaser. – Im going to the bad place – I know ;P

    The new congregation will be very blessed to have you.

    WAIT – hold the phone – I just realized the date. Will this cause any trouble with FFL???

    I will hope not as I am certainly looking forward to meeting you and all the shenanigans there will to be had.

    • OMG, seriously. You have no idea how entertaining/ disturbing that is, especially since now I am entertaining that idea. Jokingly, but still…
      I am sad to go, but excited for the new challenges.
      Should not cause trouble for FFL. I should know more soon. I am going to do everything in my power to make sure it won’t.
