Met a locksmith at my former residence on Illini Rod. He removed the piece of the key that I broke off in the front door like when I left four weeks ago. I then followed him to the shop to get a couple new keys cut.
Back to the office. Wrote lectionary reflection #20, out of an eventual 30, that will appear in November of next year in Forward Day by Day.
Kept an 1100am appointment with layperson for an initial conversation about discernment for ordination.
Back to the west side for lunch at Popeye’s, followed by a haircut at Sport Clips
Processed some email and attended to a stack of chores via email, each of which was fairly small in itself, but added up to something substantial.
Headed out on a brisk walk, west to Spring, south to South Grand, east to Eighth Street, north (past the Lincoln home) to Adams, west to Second, and south back to the office.
Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
Drove down to Mt Vernon for the night, with a substantive pastoral conversation with a cleric of the diocese while en route.
