Can't sleep

I've been tagged :)

It is 1:07 AM and I'm having a hard time sleeping because I am distressed and pissed at something going on in the church. It's one of those political things that detracts a pastor from the work of being a pastor. I seem to spend half my week in conflict management.

So, this is the way it works. Knock the top name off the list below. Add yours to the bottom.

Topmost Apple
Rebel Without a Pew
The Apostle John

Tag five people for this meme

What were you doing 10 years ago?
According to my diary, my new Associate Pastor and I had just gotten back from the Bahamas on a weekend cruise the church gave us as a retreat. Remember, where I live it is not that expensive and there are cruise connections in the congregation.

What were you doing a year ago?
I was spending the day in prayer for my student assistant pastor, who was taking her ordination exams.
