Exercise = Oxygen Mask?

Started my new job/ministry at the Falls Church Episcopal on Tuesday of this past week, and so it's been quite a week: We’re beginning a brand-new service at the 9:00 a.m. hour on Sunday, the first time the Episcopalians will have worshiped on a regular Sunday morning basis in the new (large) church/sanctuary since getting their property back in April. We're also shifting the 10:15 service that takes place in the Historical Church to 11:00 a.m., and continuing with the 8:00 service there as well. And launching the Fall program year of Sunday School. And Adult Christian Education hour. And hiring a minister of music. And trying to figure out the keys. So in  a week like that, ironically, the things that slip...the things we tend not to take time for...are things like exercise , prayer , and sleep : the very things that give us (at least me) sanity, groundedness and creativity.  So I want to thank a colleague and friend of mine who sent me an email checking
