vacation or not

Some friends wanted to go on vacation to various places like Cornerstone festival, ALIVE festival, whitewater, caving, etc.  I don’t know if I’ll get a chance to over the next few summer because I think the Vocation Director assigns summer pastoral work.  They may even send me to Mexico or the Dominican Republic if I don’t learn Spanish well enough.  I think I’m free next summer, but after that, who knows.  I’m leaning toward the ALIVE festival in Ohio, mainly because I’ve never been.  — But I’m easy.

Vacation before death

After telling several friends and family about my acceptance, I’ve had several suggestions and offers of things to do before “it” starts.  Some include taking a vacation to Dallas, the Cornerstone Music Festival in Illinois, the ALIVE festival in Ohio, whitewater rafting, and even a bachelor party. It’s starting to sound more like “it” is a permanent vacation to the “Pet Farm” that Fluffy and Spot don’t come back from.  … or maybe I really don’t understand the whole seminary and priesthood experience yet.  Prayer and patience.

Kermit?  anyone?
