Called a London hotel to finalize arrangements for my short August trip.
Took care of some business related to “Elections & Appointments.”
Did some last minutes prep in front of an afternoon conference call.
Started drafting a text for my sermon on June 22 (Proper 7 at Redeemer, Cairo).
Lunch from TG, eaten at home.
Resumed work on the Proper 7 sermon.
Chaired a scheduled 2pm meeting, via conference call, of the Nashotah House Board of Trustees Executive Committee. It was a jam-packed agenda, and the discussion was animated at times, but I believe we did good work.
The meeting broke up at 4:10. I made a couple of short follow-up notes to myself, and sent an email, but was otherwise completely drained. My introversion is taxed by such experiences.
Friday personal prayer: lectio divina on tomorrow’s Old Testament reading in the Daily Office–Joshua and Caleb getting the hagiographic treatment in Ecclesiasticus.
Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
After grilling burgers on the Big Green Egg, and consuming said burgers, I finished the Proper 7 sermon draft, and put some meat on the bones of a homiletical outline for Proper 8 (St James, Marion).
