I'm blogging less and less. I'm busy with many activities.


And, I don't have a verger.




If I had a verger, I'd blog more.

Where is my verger? I need one. I'm serious.

Since I have no memory (and am too lazy to look it up).

What exactly is a verger? What does one do (that would allow you to blog)? Do I need one too?

Rev SS said...

ditto what Gord asked

Sue said...

I had to look it up, but my dear St. C., if you find one, could you send her/him my way? Pleeeeeeze?????

If the Vicar of Dibley is any indication, the primary job of a verger is to wear odd clothes and fail to understand your jokes!

Susan O said...

You DO need a verger. Preferably one with a shepherd's crook to knock all the hoi polloi out of the road so that you can pass by in peace.

I am so totally writing my congressperson about you getting a verger.

St. Casserole said...

A verger sets up worship services, helps the preacher vest, checks preacher for lipstick smears, uneven stoles and uncombed hair.
The verger folds bulletins, tidies up the Sanctuary and takes notes for the preacher.

I need one. I don't care if she dresses oddly and doesn't get my humor.

She can be my driver, too.

Please call the Verger Supply House immediately for me!

Presbies have vergers? Interesting.

I've always found the verger stick (surely it has a real name) a little daunting.

Can I come be yor verger? It sounds like fun. And you could help me shop for shoes.

Does the COM know you're advertising for a verger?

The job description sounds like the guys in colonial times who tickled the noses of those who feel asleep during those L-O-N-G Puritan sermons. Except without the feather duster. Can't remember what they were called.

I broke the little doo-hickey on my thing-ma-jig for my wireless mic yesterday.
It fell off and I stepped on it.
I had to order a new one. They cost $16, plus shiping.
Uh, I want a verger too.
Is there a place for one on the denominational website's site for job openings.
Do you think Antonio would be my verger?

Teri said...

me too, but not alice please. :-)

The little stick thing is called a virge. But I swear I've heard it called a mace because it looks an awful lot like the medieval weapon, just less pointy parts at the end. So yeah, you should definitely get a verger :)

Like Songbird, my understanding of verger comes from Vicar of Dibley. If you find a verger, let me know. I'm thinking that I don't so much need a verger as I need a wife to keep up with my details (like I do for the rest of the household) or even a domestic goddess. G&T does pretty well at the helping me robe when he's around for my preaching gigs, but often he's at home church and I'm at little church in the woods or on the prairie... Keep us posted on how the verger hunt (is that like a snipe hunt?) goes.

I am a verger & have trained many - it is called a virge or a mace depending on its size & ornamentation... I personally know the Head Verger at the National Cathedral... impressed?!

Sue said...

I want Teh Clooney to be my verger. Definitely. Did anyone see him on ER last week??? Oh, the cuteness....

Deb said...

Dang. Sue got there first. I was going to ask for Teh Clooney. (I also saw him on ER. wow.)

But now that I know what a verger is I want to order one. And do they come with maid/gardener/life manager too?

Rev SS said...

I need a verger too! Please share resumes of those you don't choose! (Teh Cluney would be nice ... but I can be convinced to consider runner up)

Singing Owl said...

I was going to ask what a verger was, and then I read the comments. LOL! I admit, with some sadness, that I kinda had one. Not exactly, but close enough. And she knew me well enough to tell me if I had lipstick on my teeth...etc. I will miss her. (Some days I wonder, "What the 87%% was I thinking to leave?) I wish I could send her south to you.
