I learned a few of these valuable lessons about pastor-hood tonight:
- Leave your big shawl/scarf/wrap in the office. It's going to get hopelessly tangled in your wireless microphone cord.
- Bribing your kids to behave works. Mostly.
- Always do a thorough sweep of the pulpit area before leaving the building, lest you drive all the way home at 8pm only to realize you've left your iPad under one of the chairs. . . the night before you're off for a week.
- A cream colored sweater on Ash Wednesday is probably a stupid choice.
