The fun of titles
I think I am having too much fun. In the time between being officially notified that one is being appointed a pastor and the actual commencement of that assignment, a priest is "Pastor-elect". He is not yet officially pastor by Church law, but has been chosen pastor, thus the term "elect".

I have been enjoying typing that title under my name in the very few official letters I have sent out in the past few days. Any bets on whether being able to simply type "Pastor" (without the "elect" part) will be more or less fun?
