Should secular churches have priests?

Help! I’m buried under a pile of deadlines and I’ll never get out!

I like to compare a religion reporter’s last two weeks before Easter to Finals week in college — there’s always something work-related I could be doing. I’ve got two articles on adultery bouncing around my brain, and a (pretty fun) Holy Week project left to organize. And on the fast approaching horizon, there’s an Easter feature and a local religious liberty conference.

These are all cool undertakings in their own way, but it’s a shame they had to come all at once. Wish me luck staying ahead of the avalanche (and not eating a whole pie from stress.)
