• Up, put together, and across the alley for devotions and Morning Prayer in the cathedral by around 0730. Then to Hardee’s drive-through for breakfast.
  • Usual Friday extended catch-up with the Archdeacon.
  • Organized tasks for the day.
  • Scanned, categorized, and tagged accumulated hard-copy material in my physical in-box.
  • Dealt substantively by email with a pastoral issue. (By “substantively” I mean … something that requires careful attention and thought; it can’t just be “dashed off.”)
  • Dealt by email with something that I would say comes under the category of “pastoral/program development.”
  • Made some technical preparations that I hope will make next week’s Good Friday liturgy go more smoothly.
  • Grabbed lunch at Taco Gringo. Brought it back to the office to eat.
  • Wandered over to the cathedral parlor to spend some time with Mrs Hultstrand and her son, and other well-wishers who came by.
  • Presided and preached at the Eucharist, and then the committal for the Ninth Bishop of Springfield, Donald Maynard Hultstrand. Hung out at the post-liturgical reception next door at the Inn at 835.
  • Dealt by email with an impending pastoral-liturgical matter.
  • Met with an individual who is at the front end of the discernment process toward potential ordination to the priesthood.
  • Evening Prayer in the office.
