Friday (St Monnica)

  • Usual weekday AM routine. Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Dealt with some logistical and planning issues related to my attendance at a meeting of the Corporation Members of Nashotah House later this month,
  • Attended to a piece of business related to my trusteeship of the Putnam Trust, of which two of our Eucharistic Communities are beneficiaries.
  • Moved the ball downfield a few yards toward the goal of being able to send some names to the search committee of a parish with a pastoral vacancy,
  • Took care of a small detail pertaining to next week’s Darrow Deanery Ascension liturgy, at which YFNB is celebrant and preacher.
  • Cracked open the commentaries on both Mark and II Corinthians toward the end of preaching responsibly at St Michael’s, O’Fallon on June 10.
  • Read some material online about a batch of General Convention resolutions that will try to homogenize and standardize procedures around the election of bishops in TEC. Lots of potential for chicanery here, IMO. Vigilance required.
  • Lunch from Taco Gringo (it’s been a while), eaten at home.
  • Surveyed my calendar and blocked out some time for a personal retreat in December.
  • Spoke by phone with a member of the Camp Board about some routine administrative issues.
  • Read and responded to an email from one of our parish clergy about goings-on in the parish.
  • Wrestled with my homiletical notes for Proper 6 (June 17 in Mt Carmel) toward the end of emerging with a central message statement for the occasion. I succeeded.
  • Read the Blue Book report from the SCLM on the status of the liturgies for same-sex “marriage.”
  • Spent a good chunk of time in silent prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
