Shaking off the COVID Delays

To all - I would like to deliver a huge apology.  Ever since the coronavirus lockdown started, I have been slipping a bit in my webmaster functions.  I could come up with excuses:

  • Lockdown depression
  • Web site overload
  • Other church projects
  • Work overload at my job
  • Vacation
  • Laziness

None of these are really a good excuse.  But some explanation of some of the above:  I was never really depressed during the lockdown.  I was disappointed in how my fellow citizens reacted (I can't count how many masks I have not seen being worn, or worn incorrectly).  But I digress.

One of my fellow stewards for our union local at the VA was taken out of action in mid-June, thrusting all the work on me and the safety officer.  That, coupled with brining on line our new Local Union web site, our new self-managed email syste, and our new non-government phone system tied up my time for a few weeks.  My time is still largely tied up during the day and early evenings as our VA is refusing to grant our officers any official time, pushing the entire load onto two of us since mid-June.  So now I'm running two web sites, taking on a huge union case- and work-load, and dealing with some malaise due to canceled diocesan youth events.  That malaise fed into my laziness.  Finally, I went out of a town for a week on a much needed vacation in the Smoky Mountains National Park.

I've shaken all that off now.  This afternoon (6 September) the following has been updated on our site:

  • The Care Core Ministry page has been updated with the correct lead.
  • The Staff page has been corrected with our new Director of Youth Ministries who is coming on board.
  • The ATT page has been cleaned out, and the page now shows the publications since the office started publishing them again in mid-July
  • Vestry minutes for June and July are published, and that page is up-to-date
  • Sermons are now available - they are taken off the Zoom feed from the new Video Camera

I plan on updating the core web software tonight, so the site may be offline for a bit while I do so.  Over the next week I'll begin rebuilding all the news feed articles.

I appreciate the trust that has been shown in me as the site administrator.  I hope to live up to that trust!

Website Administrator.
