Friday (William Temple)

  • Usual AM routine; Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Turned my attention once again to my sermon for Proper 27 (this Sunday at St Paul’s, Carlinville). Exalted some valleys and made some rough places plain, and printed out a working script.
  • Got to work on scanning a formidable pile of assorted hard copy materials that had been accumulated on my credenza’s inbox.
  • Presided and preached at the regular midday cathedral liturgy.
  • Lunched with the Provost and two of his parishioners. Strictly social, no agenda.
  • Got back to the scanning project. It was quite a pile.
  • Took a phone call from a Nashotah House stakeholder.
  • Sat prayerfully with my notes from exegetical commentaries on the readings for Christ the King (two weekends hence in Marion County Parish) and arrived at the single declarative message statement from which every sermon sprouts.
  • Prayed the Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
