It appears that my church does not learn a thing. Not content with appointing me Assistant Rectors Warden in 2007, they have now compounded the mistake by asking me to serve as Senior Rectors Warden.
Near as I can work out, this seems to involve signing pieces of paper vaguely insinuating that it doesn’t matter who broke it, it’s my fault. 😉
One again, the reward for a job well done is more work. The only solutions I know are to learn that the word “no” is also an answer, or to do such a job that they learn never to repeat that mistake again.
Fortunately for us all, there are people who don’t learn these techniques, else nothing would ever get done. Congratulations!
Does your rector have two wardens (Senior and Assistant), or does your church have two rectors (ditto)?
Thanks Tregonsee. 🙂 We shall see whether they’ll ever repeat this mistake again at the end of the year…
My Rector has two wardens Scott, we’re greedy like that. 😉
I think you deserved to be a Warden at you Church and I have no doubt in my mine that you will do a very good Job of it !!!!
Will you please quit knocking your self down!!!!!
Thanks Wendy. I seem to be afflicted with an English sense of humour.
I can’t seem to find your e-mail address. Could you send me an e-mail to our yahoo account?
Hi Peter. I pray that all is going well for you and your household.
Blessings always in Jesus name.
Fortunatley for us, Pete, you are a slow learner! 🙂
Hi Timbob – sorry I have not been your way recently, been very busy, will try to get there this week!
Liz – heh 😉
This is very significant. Do things run in families and will there be a third? Thanks for summarising what the job entails as I have yet to find out!
First blog I read after wakeup from sleep today!
I would appear that you meet one of the most important requirement of the job. You really do not want it.
