True that.....

This reminds me of the days when I was on the parish council and something my mother used to say when I was a young teen: "Be home by 10 PM. Nothing good happens away from home after 10 PM."

In that case, our church must have had a parish council meeting of extraordinary benefit today, due to Father's illness. (c;

Good one, but shouldn't the axes be labeled with the other name? Length going along the bottom, spiritual benefits on the side?

David, That could work too, but then I'd have to reverse the A and B's, but I'm too dyslexic to attempt that. :)

nope, A and B would still be the same. (it would make Randall happy too)

And then there's the immortal words of my beloved spiritual guide, Elder Delirios: "Many have prayed for their salvation in Parish Councils... enduring as a great ascetic exercise of their sense that the Second Coming can't be soon enough - wishing only that they could awaken in its Joy. Alas..."

"Be home by 10 PM. Nothing good happens away from home after 10 PM."

LOL.

Anon, Well I'll be gol-danged. But it is much easier to write "length" sideways than "spiritual benefits"... You guys don't know the trouble I go through to draw these. :)

JtTH, Elder Delirios...Alas. ROTFL! Can I steal him for a Curmudgeophan Comix character?

"Elder Delirios"

Bwwaahahahaaaa! Bawwaahahaaa!

And to think, I let Padre talk me into serving on Council in the coming year. I fought the good fight for 6 years and lost.

Kyrie Elesion.

Elder Delirios. I am *so* making a pilgrimage to his monastery. Leaving now.

Athanasia: My fantasy, if I were ever to be on parish council (perish the thought), is to take on the role of The Terminator. Many are the parish programs, policies, and activities that I'd terminate, had I the power (meetings being, obviously, high on the list). You're welcome to borrow this fantasy, if you like. Even more welcome to enact it. :-)

Hmm, I guess if you terminate enough stuff, that'd make it a Perish Council. Terminate enough meetings, you'd have a Perished Council. Heh.

In my Anglican days I have been guilty of bribing bellringers with promises of pints in the Cat & Curate to end parish council meetings early.
