My Favorite Things Parody

For the last couple of years, we have had joint charge conferences within our mission area.  While I appreciate the time together, I don't always appreciate the lengthy, often random, last minute reporting that happens from each church. This year, I requested, on behalf of parishioners, that we keep it short and sweet.  We had seemingly agreed and then the day of I received an email encouraging us to do a power point (something we agreed NOT to do), a drama, or something else fun.  I was a bit annoyed.  I thought about having various folks share and figured that would take far too long.  So, I decided to go a different route entirely.  I rewrote the lyrics to "My Favorite Things" and we sang our report.  Lyrics are below. 

Path of Life feedings & Sunday morning breakfast
Thanksgiving Dinner, & Showers for the homeless,
Servants in ev-er-y ministry field
These are a few of our favorite things

Fellowship, worship, and then Bible study
Nursery repainting and buildings with roofing
 NA & AA & Karate too
These are a few of our favorite things

Bell choir and praise team and Chancel choir
Youth testimonies and liturgical dancing
 All of our laity doing these things
These are a few of our favorite things

When the pipes burst
When the mic fails
When there’s graffiti
We simply remember our favorite things
And then we don’t feel so bad.
