- Did the finish work on this Sunday’s homily–which included sending a copy off by email to a Marine officer who will deliver it as he presides at Morning Prayer with his family … in Okinawa.
- Perused my backlog of Christmas sermons, and selected one that can be convincingly refurbished for use this year at St Paul’s Cathedral. Both the top contenders worked the “room in the inn” theme, so that’s what I’m going with.
- Attended a 75-minute Zoom meeting of the House of Bishops “Table 10,” with the Bishops of Spokane and South Dakota, and the Assisting Bishop of Long Island. The Bishop of Southwestern Virginia and the retired bishop of Arizona are part of this group as well, but circumstances conspired against their attendance.
- Did an Ignatian meditation on the daily office gospel reading for the day … plus the usual afternoon walk with Brenda.
