There's good pressure and bad pressure. I've got enough to do this week that it constitutes good pressure. Three sermons to prepare for the Easter weekend, with not much breathing space during the weekend. The African Easter celebrations are pretty much flat out from Thursday afternoon until Sunday lunchtime. In fact, they started Holy Week last week already. But a lot of it seems to keep going without the minister. They have different expectations of the minister to the English-speaking setting.
I've got a phase 1 assignment due on the 15th and also two exegeses to do before the 21st. The exegeses form the basis for our synod oral exam (which will happen on 5 May).
I'm also trying to keep my Masters bubbling along - but that happens strictly in my time off, so that's ok.
