As the saying goes, I “came down with something” during the night, mostly resembling an upper respiratory infection trying to get traction. I bombard such things with zinc capsules, which usually seems to have an ameliorating affect. Throat still sore as I write late in the evening, however. Anyway, I took it easy getting going for the date, trying to give my body a break. Morning Prayer at home. Rolled in at the office around 10:30. Since this is the week between Christmas and New Year’s, we’re short staffed, so it was relatively quiet. I consulted with the Archdeacon on a couple of things. Took a lengthy phone call from the treasurer of one of our Eucharistic Communities about an emerging and developing issue. Got a few ducks in a row regarding next actions as pertain to one of our individuals in the ordination process. Attended a bit to my social media footprint. Attended the 12:15 Mass in the cathedral chapel in celebration of Holy Innocents Day. Lunch at home–leftovers (of which there is an abundance, courtesy of our holiday houseguests). Worked from home during the afternoon: Did major surgery on a homily for the First Sunday after Epiphany, originally given in 1998 and now repurposed for January 10 at Trinity, Lincoln. Drafted a Pastoral Letter to the diocese that I will refine and purvey next week.
