Friday (St Basil)

  • Usual AM routine; MP in the cathedral.
  • 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).
