Fifteen Minutes of Fame

My church has opened its doors to a Lutheran congregation across the street whose sanctuary was damaged by a fire. On Maundy Thursday, I washed the feet of the Lutheran pastor. We wound up on the front page of yesterday's paper, as part of a nice story about interfaith cooperation. Friends at church were teasing me about it.
Thursday I was tired and droopy, although I felt somewhat better after swimming for an hour. Yesterday I was hideously depressed all day, partly because the weather was gloomy -- rain and snow -- although I guess that's appropriate for Good Friday. I knit through our three-hour service and got some schoolwork done afterwards, although I still felt, and feel, oppressed by how much is left.
This morning, though, I'm feeling better, thank goodness. I'm preaching tonight and still have to write the homily, so I need all the energy I can get.
