All Saints

  • Usual weekday morning routine. Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Prepared to preside and preach at the midday cathedral liturgy.
  • Dealt by email and phone with a substantial administrative issue.
  • Deconstructed and reconstructed a sermon text for Proper 27 from 1996, repurposing it for use at Trinity, Mattoon on the 12th.
  • Attended by email to a relatively small administrative leadership matter.
  • Took a phone call from Fr McMichael to talk through some of the choreography for this Sunday’s liturgies at St Andrew’s, Edwardsville.
  • Substantive meeting with Rod Matthews, here for some Treasurer work, but, in our conversation, wearing his senior warden of Christ the King, Normal hat.
  • Returned a phone call to a lay leader in one of our Eucharistic Communities.
  • Presided and preached at the cathedral Mass for All Saints’ Day.
  • Lunch at home. Leftovers.
  • Attended to some work pertaining to two individuals who are ordained in other churches but who wish to serve as priests in the Episcopal Church. This is invariably a complicated process, requiring a lot of attention to detail.
  • Scanned what felt like a truckload of hard copy materials.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
