I am feeling so much better! Acting on the words of Bishop Paul Verryn, who everybody says does too much, I set some boundaries. And I refused to be coerced into a short notice meeting this afternoon. I realise now that I just needed time to catch up on the stress of last weekend. Not that I did nothing. I worked on my studies last night, and before and after the funeral I conducted this morning.
That is why I learnt new word. An amphictyony is a 'league of tribes', which is what the Israelites were - up until they had a king, I suppose.
