So here's where I've had my "reactionary skill" tested:
- Wednesday night's guest speaker's plane was delayed three times and instead of arriving 5:30 as scheduled he made it here at 8:30....one hour past when he was to speak.
- In the midst of taking calls of updates from him from DFW, I am told that in the process of feeding hundreds of guests we are out of food....and I'm assumed to be the one who will do something about it. I've never had that happen to me before.
- We needed to raise $48,000+ to pay for the event and we raised $35,000.
- The weather is neurotic and the forecasts are moreso. It's rained hard and long. Yesterday we were hearing six inches of snow for today. Some in the herd were beginning to panic. Then the forecast shifted to a Saturday morning of one inch of slush. Ah, we'll be fine.
As I write this blog we have a snow storm on our hands. The prediction is 2-4 inches The people from the South are frightful and from the North are going "what snow"?
So, here I am working on a sermon on reaction. I've had plenty of practice so far. I shoulda seen it coming.
