The big stuff:
- Attended (via Facebook Live) the Title IV hearing in which the respondent was my friend and colleague, the Bishop of Albany. He is on trial for his refusal to either implement same-sex marriage in his diocese or make provision by assigning a DEPO bishop to parishes that want to implement same-sex marriage. He is making a courageous witness, potentially at great personal cost.
- After hearing just last evening that St Barnabas’, Havana does want to see me this Sunday, I “whipped up” a homily for their patronal feast from start to finish. As you might imagine, this consumed a big chunk of time.
- Routine but substantive phone conversation with Canon Evans.
- Signed off on more “percentage of capacity” plans, dealt with vacancy issues and search processes.
