I had full expectations of worship preparation progressing quickly this week. It hasn’t happened that way. We are singing many hymns this Sunday, it is our second annual Country Cowboy Worship. It is the weekend of the Fall Fair and Rodeo so we decided to hold a worship service that reflected some of those themes. This year Session decided on a Scriptures, stories and songs theme, the hymns being old Gospel favourites – Leaning on the everlasting arms – Sweet hour of prayer – The old rugged cross – Blessed assurance. We are decorating the church country, quilts, hay bales, saddles, rocking chairs, cowboy boots and hats (pictures to follow).
I have all the research completed for each of the hymns, but have yet to write the prayers and organize all the stories. Okay, so I have two days left. I also want to attend the Fair parade tomorrow, have a second golf lesson, and golf at the Dawson Creek Golf and Country Club on Saturday, go out for dinner with the other golfing couple, and watch the Blue Bomber game. As always, it will get done, one way or another.
